Introduction

This morning I have decided that I should start blogging about everything related to hearing loss (personal and non personal). It would be great to hear (no pun intended) from others about these issues. I have a lot of stories to share about my hearing loss. I am always on the lookout for hearing related issues in the media.

A little about me: My name is Elizabeth or (e.
I have a hearing loss. I am profoundly (almost completely) deaf in my left ear and moderately (somewhat) deaf in my right ear. I wear a behind-the-ear hearing aid in my right ear. To me, my hearing aid resembles a flesh colored plastic shrimp. I have been wearing hearing aids since I was a toddler. Currently, I am a teacher of deaf and hard-of-hearing children. I know American Sign Language, but I am not a native or fluent signer. I started learning sign language about six years ago. It is what led me to become more interested in hearing loss and Deaf culture.

"What's up with the (e ?" you are probably wondering. This is my logo created by Jose Gross. The e is my ear and the ( is my hearing aid. Isn't that cute? :)
