About the Author Dr. Esther Ansaba Riverson has over 40 years teaching experience. Esther attended Wesley Girls High School, Cape Coast, (1960 -1966) and taught Mfantsiman Girls’ Secondary School, Saltpond, (1966-1968). She earned her BSc. from the University of Ghana (1971), and MSc. at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science & Technology (1973). She worked as the Ashanti Regional Planning Officer (1973-1978) and taught at Anglican Secondary School, Kumasi, Ghana (1978-1981). In 1981, her family moved to Purdue University, W. Lafayette, IN where her husband began working on his PhD. Esther decided to stay home and take care of her husband and four children. After three years, circumstances beyond their control caused Esther to enroll in Purdue University and she successfully completed an MS (1986), and a PhD (1989) in Human Nutrition. After graduation Esther and her children joined her husband in the Washington D.C. Area. She decided to find part-time employment that would enable her to work around her children’s schedules.

In 1992 she heard about the Kumon Education Program and started the Kumon Math with her children and managed the Center for ten years working with hundreds of children with different learning styles. This kindled her interest in Special Education. In 1999 the mother of her son’s friend told her about the need for Teachers of the Visually Impaired, and about an on-line course offered by the University of Louisville. Subsequently Esther enrolled and read for the M.Ed. (Visual Impairments). After two semesters, she accepted a position as a Teacher of the Blind and Visually Impaired in Arlington Public Schools (2001-2003). When Esther’s husband was posted in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, she decided to join him. While there, she founded and managed Intelligentsia Academy (2004 – 2006). She returned to the USA and worked as a Teacher of the Blind and Visually Impaired in Prince William County Schools until she retired in 2010. Esther is currently on contract with Allied Instructional Services as a Teacher of the Blind and Visually Impaired in Alexandria City Public Schools, and with the PIE Program of Alexandria. Esther loves children. She founded CITA Foundation, to help educate underprivileged children, and helps with the children's programs at WOL International Church. She lives in Northern Virginia with her husband, children and grandchildren.
