I remember when I was at graduate school, I heard about this profoundly deaf student who uses ASL, deciding to student teach in a regular public school classroom in New York City.
Here is an article which explains how she got this arranged and what happened. It talks about both the positive and negative aspects of being a deaf teacher in a regular classroom with hearing students. It is very interesting and inspiring.
What do you think? Is it possible for a severely or profoundly deaf teacher to teach in a regular classroom of hearing students? Would you dare to attempt such a feat?
