SignWriting List
September 20, 2011

Bob -
What a remarkable message - and what a remarkable person you are - skilled in ASL and Braille and chemistry and mathematics - very impressive indeed - A former professor from Gallaudet University? my goodness - how fascinating your life story would be - you need to write about all your experiences teaching Deaf students at Gallaudet, and then when the Deaf President Now movement occurred, how it changed your life - and working with Braille - I am amazed truly - 

By the way, Adam is an interpreter for the Deaf-Blind as well ....

I wept at the story of Eve Carson - I did not know about her story - what a tragedy - and how beautiful she was and so brilliant - I read about it here:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Murder_of_Eve_Carson

She has just touched my life, and I will always remember her now -

Thank you for being on our SignWriting List, Bob - 

Val ;-)

I taught at Gallaudet until DPN, and the faculty made it VERY uncomfortable for hearing people (yes, even ones like me that were near-native fluent in ASL).  I moved to teach in another specialized high school just outside of DC, now in NC, continuing my work with academically gifted kids.
