Amber Rundle-Kahn, Blindness/Visual Impairment - University of Northern Colorado

Amber is a Teacher for Students with Visual Impairments and a Certified Orientation and Mobility Specialist. She has 15 years of practical experience working in large and small metropolitan school districts.  While the majority of her responsibilities have been in the K-12 setting, she has experience working with adults as well as infants and toddlers in Part C services. Amber’s extended responsibilities have included recruitment and retention efforts, mentoring and training new teachers, serving as team lead, and establishing a new “in-house” program in her current position.

Amber is interested in research and leadership opportunities; in August she will commence her PhD studies in Visual Impairments at the University of Northern Colorado.  Amber is interested in studying service models across the country to analyze and understand how varying service structures might impact employability. She is also interested in working to streamline the transition process across the multiple transitions children and young adults encounter.
