Sara had been in our elementary education/early childhood unified program for several semesters. She was provided an interpreter in our classes, and we learned to work with Sara and her interpreter. While reserved and quiet, Sara participated, asked questions, and utilized various forms of communication to make sure she did well both in class and out of class. Sara dreamt of teaching students like herself, but needed an undergraduate degree in Early Childhood Unified (ECU) to pursue the requisite masters in deaf education she’d eventually need. This meant she would have to teach hearing students to fulfill her requirements for her ECU degree. She was committed to finding success in the program, and we were committed to helping her. But it was her time out in the field that had us most worried.
