Welcome to the DHH Preschool/Kindergarten class!
I am so excited to work with your wonderful children! I have worked with Deaf and Hard of Hearing children from birth to 1st grade for many years and I love to work in the preschool setting!
Our class is a unique learning environment for Deaf and Hard of Hearing Children. We will expose your children to both English (spoken and written) and American Sign Language throughout the school day. Every other day we will emphasize speech/listening/English skills and ASL skills. We will also teach your child how to use an interpreter. In the classroom we will provide a rich environment of literacy and language acquisition. Language learning will be provided through repetition, continual themes and immersion into both English and ASL.
I want the parents to be a part of our team and we will provide bi-monthly parent meetings as well as weekly sign language classes.
It is going to be a great year! Thank you for sharing your darling children with me!
