Congratulations to Amy Baillie the Learn Local Teacher of the Year for 2011. Amy Baillie is a teacher at Meadow Heights Learning Shop and is their Curriculum Coordinator.

As well as being a senior tutor for Certificate III, IV and Diploma of Education Support, Amy is the curriculum development Officer at Meadow Heights Learning Shop. Amy is legally blind, but believes that her disability is an opportunity to display a positive model to others. As a vision impaired tutor, Amy has to be innovative when engaging in planning, delivering and assessing her course. She uses adaptive computer technology, including screen reading software, which enables her to design materials, keep track of session plans and develop ways to receive and mark student’s assessments. Amy achieves exceptional attendance rates and learning outcomes- many of her students have gone on to either part – time or full time employment in mainstream or special development schools for further education. Past students give glowing recommendations to “go and enrol with Amy”.
