I've been stuck in a rut. I love my job but unfortunately it is just not permanent enough, nor do I make enough doing this job.
My roommate suggested this Deaf Education program to me.
As some of you may remember I am interested in ASL (American Sign Language). My dad's parents are Deaf and so that helped me want to learn more about the language.
I have taken two ASL classes and loved them, I can't wait to take more.
Anyway back to the Deaf Education program. It's a program offered through York University in Toronto. It's available to teachers with at least a B average in Teacher's College. I had an A average. You have to have completed at least two ASL courses (I have bare minimum).
It's a full-time, one year program.
Did I mention it's FREE?? Tuition is free to Ontario teachers. I would need to cover accomodation, transportation and books.
It costs $50 to apply, and is a lot of paperwork (reference letters, essays, application). I am thinking about it, it doesn't hurt to at least apply.
I have looked more into the opportunities for Teachers of the Deaf. There seem to be some, but not a huge amount. Something to think about...
