Jenna Gabel, Teacher of the Deaf

I wanted to let you know how impressed I am with both the Professional Academy. I have been a member of the Professional Academy for just under a year. I feel like it really fills a void in our field. I sit through a lot of trainings in my school district that don't always pertain to what I do, and it is so refreshing to be able to view trainings that are one hundred percent geared towards my job. I love the variety of experts that you have pulled together, and the variety of topics that are offered. The COVID meet-ups were also incredibly helpful when trying to teach in a very unprecedented time.   Thank you!!!.

 

Tracey Allen, Interpreter

  

I just have to say I LOVE what you are doing with the Online Itinerant. You and the amazing presenters have helped me tremendously in such a short time. Thank you so much for all you do. You are truly making a big impact in my life and early education/experience in this profession.

Kearston Jose, Teacher of the Deaf

As a third year DHH teacher and one who had my first year of itinerant teaching this past school year, this website is such a great tool! The modules are very helpful, offer great insight, and I love that they can be done on your own time. The monthly meet ups are great as well, as it’s a time for us to share ideas and feedback with each other. I am looking forward to the future of the website!
