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? :)
