Hello! My name is Tabathia Roark. I am the Arts and Humanities teacher at The Kentucky School for the Blind. This school year marks my 16th year at KSB! I am originally from the small town of Hodgenville Kentucky. I obtained my undergraduate degree in music education from The University of Louisville in 1994. I completed my Masters degree in special education with a certification to teach students who are blind/visually impaired from The University of Louisville in 2004 as well as later completing my Rank I in Assistive Technology and an additional certification to teach students with moderate and severe disabilities. In addition to teaching all of the K-12 Arts and Humanities classes, I oversee the music department with our talented instrumental instructors. I also help in overseeing our partnership with the Kentucky Museum of Arts and Crafts providing our school and students with artists and projects throughout the school year. In my personal life, I am a huge Indianapolis Colts fan, an avid DIY fanatic addicted to creating crafts as seen on Pinterest, and I also enjoy spending time with my boyfriend, little dog RaRa, and my family. I love teaching at KSB and each year is always a new adventure with fun and exciting ways to teach the arts.
