Bio

Losing my job in special communication solutions for adults with disabilities didn't seem great at the time, but I'm so grateful for how it's changed my life, and my daughter's. She's recovering from the shame and frustration she'd experienced as a failing special ed student, and I'm figuring out how she thinks, and how to teach her what the kids in her class are working on.

Losing my job in special communication solutions for adults with disabilities didn't seem great at the time, but I'm so grateful for how it's changed my life, and my daughter's. She's recovering from the shame and frustration she'd experienced as a failing special ed student, and I'm figuring out how she thinks, and how to teach her what the kids in her class are working on. We use all the tools available, and make our own. Today we were a sight for the neighbors, I'm sure, as we trucked our baskets of rocks up and down the number line we've painted across our big field. As she went to bed, she hugged me with happiness because she'd attained "proficiency" at the Khan Academy website on the subject of finding least common denominators. ("Where'd you first drop a second rock on a number? That's the one!")

I think I can bring another girl on board, which is why I've gone through this process online here, having seen your advertisement, neighbor. I'd like the opportunity to talk it over and see if this idea suits us all. I don't think you can see my LinkedIn profile, so I'll sum it up:

I've been a senior Vocational Rehab Counselor for DSHS/DVR since 1996, with responsibilities to deaf and hard-of-hearing folks on this side of the mountains for most of that. I've taught college classes in San Diego (GED, Adult Basic Ed, and Photography) and here at Whitworth and at both community colleges (Deaf Culture, American Sign Language). I've been a foster mom, just so I could be an adoptive mom, and I was a magnet for kids with special needs, I guess. I work from home using automatic speech recognition to make captions for a living now, with the long-term intention to teach blind people how to do it. The only other thing you need to know at this point is that I know myself very well, and I only take on work I can do wonderfully. Anything else would be a waste of precious time.
