Paulina Diaz, left, practices using a Braille typewriter under the supervision of Terry Layfield, a teacher of the visually impaired, in the Red Oak Middle School Learning Commons on Dec. 16, 2015. Diaz is affected by albinism, which caused her loss of vision. She has been working with Layfield since she was 5 years old, and sends letters written in Braille to another of Layfield's students at Red Oak High School.
