The Indiana State Library eagerly anticipates the presentation of 2015 Teacher of the Year Kathy Nimmer during the Indiana Vision Expo on September 26 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at the Indiana State Library.



“Kathy’s story is fascinating and inspirational. We are excited that our attendees will be able to hear it, in addition to learning about the many resources provided by our vendors,” said Talking Books & Braille Librarian Laura Williams.



Kathy Nimmer was awarded Teacher of the Year by the Indiana Department of Education for her excellent work as an English teacher at Harrison High School in West Lafayette. In second grade, Kathy was diagnosed with a rare eye disease that caused her vision to slowly to deteriorate over time. In spite of this, she went on to earn her BA, followed by a Masters degree in English from Purdue University in 1992. She has published a book of poetry “Minutes in the Dark, Eternity in the Light,” and an anthology featuring stories and poems by and about people with disabilities and their working dogs, entitled “Two Plus Four Equals One.” In 2014, Kathy received the “Sagamore of the Wabash,” Indiana’s highest civilian honor.



Vision Expo provides an opportunity for people with vision loss, their friends, families, and service providers to learn about the resources available that help promote independent living. It is also a great opportunity to meet the Talking Book staff as well as fellow Talking Book patrons. This year’s event also features Drs. Richard and Laura Windsor who are award-winning optometrists specializing in the field of low vision.
