I am a hearing-impaired person who speaks fluent sign language and has very clear speaking abilities. I have the unique ability to fully understand what your hearing impaired child/family member/friend experiences on a daily basis. I was diagnosed with a severe hearing impairment at the age of 3 and worked many years with Dr. Rebecca F. of Vanderbilt University. I often surprise people when they find out the extent of my hearing impairment.
I have several friends at college of whom I am their personal interpreter when dealing with college staff or in public situations. What I lack in teaching experience, I can fully make up for in my daily life struggles and accomplishments.
I welcome the opportunity to expand my knowledge and skills as well as increase my number of friends.
I am very comfortable teaching younger children through high school and have often worked with interpreting for adults at my church mission store.
Thank you for reviewing my profile. I hope that I have the pleasure of meeting you in the future.
