I knew from my first class that signing was what I wanted to do. I originally took my first Signing Exact English (S.E.E.) classes in 1996 from the S.E.E. Center in Southern California. Then, in 1998, I continued on to Golden West College to complete my interpreting credential. Since graduating in 2000, I have been employed full time as a S.E.E. interpreter working at both the elementary and junior high school levels. I have worked as a full time mainstream interpreter and as an interpreter at Northwest School for Hearing-Impaired Children. In June of 2004 I became E.S.S.E. certified by the S.E.E. Center as a S.E.E. interpreter. I have been teaching S.E.E. classes for the past six years and I am currently employed at Seattle Children’s Hospital as the Coordinator of Sign Language Instruction for Family Conversations. I teach S.E.E. classes at various levels from beginning through advanced. I have also had the privilege of joining the SEE Center as a skillshop instructor.
