Our Mission

VISTAS Education Partners (VISTAS) is dedicated to facilitating high-quality instructional, diagnostic, and consultative services that promote access, inclusion, and individualized educational success for blind and low vision learners in preK-12+ general and special education settings.

Recognizing the value of out-of-school time learning, VISTAS is also committed to collaboration with community based organizations to provide educational enrichment opportunities during the extended school day and summer that address essential learning in areas of the Expanded Core Curriculum.

About Us

VISTAS was launched in 2016 by Monique Coleman, after more than 15 years of working as a Teacher of the Visually Impaired (TVI) with children from early intervention through high school. Monique started VISTAS in order to reach more students in need of high quality, 21st century instructional support and effective educational programming.

VISTAS was also created to fill a critical need for both inclusive and specialized, community-based programs that enrich the lives of individuals with vision impairments and forges relationships across ability differences. Since its inception, VISTAS has served students in more than a dozen New Jersey school districts and has  provided community-based enrichment activities in collaboration with local community organizations.

Our Staff

VISTAS educators strive to help each student reach their full potential through child-centered instruction in areas of the Expanded Core Curriculum for blind and visually impaired learners and a team-based approach to implementing meaningful, full access and inclusion in their educational program.
