GSA and TSBVI develop innovative PE program

While GSA was under construction, Sparks and TSBVI’s Elina Mullen, Kristine Seljenes and Joe Paschall built a new relationship that they warmly refer to as “reverse mainstreaming.” Under their guidance, sighted and visually impaired students began to share PE classes and other social and recreational activities.
