Teacher of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing (Current Employee) – West Hartford, CT – June 20, 2017
the american School for the deaf has a wide range of programs and is constantly growing and looking for ways to meet the need of the deaf or hard of hearing student. I had a caseload of 25-30 Speech and language students seen individually in Small group. The culture has proved mostly warm and fostering of the educational process and enhancing skills of the staff. Hardest part of the job may be testing and writing of several Triennial reports sometimes with short notice. I enjoy direct instruction and seeing students learn, grow socially and develop a sense of pride from hard work that they do.
supportive staff and management, fantastic students, willingness to adapt
fading emphasis on needs of spoken English, oral/aural learners.

Overall, American School for the Deaf is a nice place to work. Coworkers are pleasant. I like that we take care of all aspects of the students, not only academically, but life skills and health care, etc, as this is a residential school.

American School for the Deaf is a joyful work environment and very expressive. The Deaf community is very present within the school. I have learned a greater fluency of sign language and ability to teach students and enjoy staff relations. The management is pleasant and supportive to staff and students. The co-workers are enjoyable. The hardest part of the job is dealing with a non-compliant student. The most enjoyable part of the job is learning, relating and enjoying both staff and students in a deaf educational environment.
A good cultural setting for students who are deaf to build their communicational needs

The school provides for students from early childhood to high school. It is a great environment for the students to learn and build their language skills. However, the management is poor. I barely informed of the school events. My principal was absent during my internship without notice and she was supposed to supervise me. The most difficult part of the job was keeping up with the events of the school. The enjoyable part was just interacting with the students overall.
It's a great environment for those who love math. I learn the value of keeping accuracy of all work as part of the goal to strive for. I also learn the importance of team work and collaborating with other individuals to make sure that all information are true and nothing is false. From working with my co-workers, it was fun because we deal with several different personality, yet we come together to meet ends with a great success. In fact, when we all work together as a team, the hardest part cease and us all working together makes life easier and enjoyable.
