Teacher Sarah overcame her fears of braille to champion improved learning for the visually impaired

“When Sister (the headmistress) called me, I asked, ‘how do I go for that training?’, I had zero experience in braille, let alone braille bricks, but Sister insisted I go. With that fear, I decided to go,” says Teacher Sarah.
