Or perhaps if you are a sole SDC teacher within a district, it would also come as a surprise. Do you listen to the chatter in the teacher's lounge? Do you become part of the conversation?

About Me
My name is Michelle Sumner and I am a teacher. Being Deaf, I use technology in every aspect of my life and I make an attempt to demonstrate its use with my students to enhance instructional opportunities as well as build confidence and expose them to real life situations they will encounter upon leaving High School. Sharing our ideas with others helps us develop confidence. Listening teaches us to respect others. This is how I leave my mark on the world.
