Biography

As an itinerant deaf and hearing-impaired teacher, my objective was to establish a distance-learning environment for my students when I am traveling to different schools in the district. I also wanted to create a virtual pen pal system with other deaf and hearing-impaired students in other districts. This allows my students to communicate with other students with similar hearing losses.I have been able to face-time with my students at the other schools in the district. Students are also working on sign language and Lexia Reading using the iPads. This environment and system provides an engaging atmosphere with the class room that allows students to achieve a greater proficiency in English and technology standards.
