Hello! My name is Meagan Gerdes. I began my adventure at the Nebraska Center for the Education of Children who are Blind or Visually Impaired in 2003 as a teacher in the severe/profound multiple disabilities classroom. I joined NCECBVI after earning my bachelor's degree in Elementary Education (K-8) with an endorsement in mild/moderate Special Education (K-12). Shortly after starting at the Center, I began taking classes toward my certification for teaching students with visual impairments. In 2009, I earned a master of arts degree from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Through my years at NCECBVI, I have taught many Expanded Core Curriculum topics such as independent living skills, sensory efficiency skills, compensatory skills, social interaction skills, self-determination skills, assistive technology, career education, and recreation and leisure skills. I am a firm believer that no one is too old to learn. I am always wanting to learn more so I can better teach my students. 

Recently, I finished my coursework for my certification as an Orientation and Mobility from Salus University. This school year I have changed position from Teacher of the Visually Impaired to Orientation and Mobility specialist. My new job title at NCECBVI gives me the opportunity to work with students in our center-based program as well as hitting the road and working with students in surrounding school districts. With all my adventures in my professional career, I am also a loving mother of three wonderful children that keep me on my toes and give me my zest for life!
