I have been a licensed Sign Language Interpreter since 2009. I first practiced in the freelance arena, and am now focusing on Elementary Education Interpreting. During the last three years, I have primarily worked with students below grade 5. I have an excellent command of basic sign language, can use English order signing, CASE (Conceptually Accurate Signed English), and ASL (American Sign Language) and have some knowledge in Visual Phonics. I recently successfully tutored an adult during an elective sign language class to complete her Masters Program in Language Disorders. She received an A+ in her class

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students.

Because of my history in Sign Language Interpreting, I have also worked with hard-of-hearing students. I have worked on phonics, reading, math, social development, and independence activities. Though not their teacher, I use specific lesson plans laid out by the teacher to guide them in their learning.
I graduated Phi Theta Kappa from Scott Community College Interpreter Training Program in 2009, and have been interpreting for both adult and children since then. I possess my Permanent Iowa Sign Language Interpreter License; this required a EIPA (Educational Interpreter Performance Assessment) score of 3.5 or higher. I achieved a 3.7 and am working toward the National Registry of Interpreters K-12 qualification of 4.0 or higher. I have been interpreting in the Educational forum for the last 3 years primarily with student below grade five; however, I have interpreted at the Jr. High level for the entire year last year. I keep all my continuing education units up to date and strive to learn as much as I can by taking workshops beyond the requirements.
