Hi All! Greeting from what feels like the surface of the sun! I hope that my video shows up and you can see it (it looks good from here). I am really looking forward to working with all of you over the next 7 weeks.
As a teacher of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing, I find it quite challenging to find materials for my students that do not need extensive modification. I find inspiration from several blogs that I read and follow, such as Edutopia, TeacherswithApps, Google Education and most especially, I follow the Tweets of several fellow Deaf educators. The person I look to most for ideas is a fellow educator on the forefront of Deaf Education, Deanne Bray (she is an actress as well, so she may look familiar to you). She often hosts Facebook Live sessions to discuss ideas and application. I also turn to many of my co-workers. They are young and new to the profession, so there are many ideas to be had! The biggest challenge that I face is finding accessible materials for my students.
I hope to learn and grow with you all during this 7 weeks.
