I teach because it has been so exciting to see the language development of young children with hearing loss; whether they are signers or use spoken language. I has been so exciting to see families work with their children in order to give their children language they need to participate in regular curriculum when they start kindergarten which sets them up for academic success and success in your environment and social success throughout their academic years and also as adults.
Do you teach d/hh/db? Join the fun! The “whyIteach” campaign is for us: teachers of students who are deaf/hard of hearing/deafblind. We are passionate about our profession, our colleagues and our students… and this is why!! Send your clip of “whyIteach” with a transcript to Anna.Paulson@state.mn.us. Your clip should be less than 1 minute in length (most are around 30 seconds). We will add captions and post it in our campaign!!
