Welcome to my homepage.

My name is Elaine Anderson. I am employed at the Florida School for the Deaf and the Blind where I teach High School students. This year I teach Career Education, Life Management Skills and Functional Vocational Math.

I have been the sponsor of Close Up at FSD since 1984. I do not know how to retire from Close Up because apparently, I relish the experience of participating in Close Up in Washington, D.C. Members and I are involved in many fund raising activities to help pay for the trip and the program as well. It is the most enlightening week long program where we roam the Capital, the classroom without the walls. We also expand the horizon in our knowledge by attending many workshops, seminars, and topical sessions.

I find myself immersed in the planning stage of the Deaf/Blind and Usher Teen Program which will be held at the American Association of the Deaf/Blind in Hartford, CT in June, 1998. My husband, Harry is currently President of the AADB. He strives to improve the life quality for the deaf/blind community.

Contact me if you have some questions related to Close Up and Teen Program as well as the subjects I am currently teaching. My e-mail address is anderse@mail.fsdb.k12.fl.us
