I work with three and four year old students with a hearing loss as part of Plano ISD’s Regional Day School Program for the Deaf (RDSPD). My classroom is an Oral Communication class and focuses on learning how to speak and “hear” (whether hearing from a hearing aid, cochlear implants, bone conduction or lip reading or both). I have worked in Deaf Education for 27 years in various settings - home, self-contained, regional day school program, and state school for the deaf. My experience spans all ages from birth to 21.
I am absolutely thrilled to be the Bluebird Preschool Teacher! My days are filled with smiles, hugs and watching my students minds develop into amazing young people! Each day I am inspired by my students to be the best me!
