I thought I knew what I would be doing this year, but plans have changed. I will be doing the same as last year.

Next month, I am presenting again at PESDHH. I am showing some of the new software and ideas that I saw when I was at NTID in June. There are some really awesome things going on. The Clerc Center is using a new technology called Voice Thread. I plan to use it with my deaf student this year-not that I have really started thinking about how yet. There is also some really cool software out there.

This School Year

I finally found out what I'm going to be doing this year. I will spend the beginning of the day with a deaf middle schooler and then go over to the elementary school and work with Kindergarten to Second grade kids with hearing loss. Hopefully I will be able to use more technology with them.

Death of a Dream

I finally got an email telling me I did not get the job. I had kind of figured that out based on what had been posted at the website. Despite my doubts about how I could manage to move and almost thinking no way, I was realllllllly disappointed that I didn't get it.

I think this was the last chance to do this kind of job. Relocating will not be an option in the future. Right now we are trying adult daycare for my mother but I don't think it will be too long before she goes into assisted living. It will be even more difficult to move then.
