Hi there!Gratefully thanks to every teacher with their great contributions to empower us. To my understand, some teachers at residential schools treated different in according to the code of ethics and conducts on the job to abide and ensure their students to achieve in the high school education toward their future careers. Probably, they treat differently after the students were automatically become alumnus/alumma. For me, my CSDR teachers treated me the same way as before. In the same manner, I graduated from NTID/Gallaudet, most professors treated me the same approach as friendships, who empowered me to accomplish in the classroom and made my motivation greatly. Gratefully thanks to them for everything to collaborate us treatly. Nick
As I've never attended Deaf schools, I cannot commend on that. However, as a Deaf teacher, I am always happy to see my old students.
Hi, Deaf Pixie!!Finally got the opporunity to see ya after writting the comments fro and back on my v/blog!! :DYes, I have noticed that myself, too. Some teachers said they could not chat while they are on the campus or school buildings. They abide with the school rules, I guess. Code of ethnics is the another reason. If you wish to chat or discuss with the specific teacher, ask for an appointment, not at the school, but somewhere else.Hope it helps.deafk
Hello, I symphatize with you! I am a short-lived teacher when I was in the west coast. I am a strong believer in showing people that the teachers are human-beings and have a lot to give to the deaf community outside the eight hours routine teachers have going for themselves. I believe in making an attempt to show that there are various options for deaf people to see...especially the deaf youngsters. That the teachers should be among the leaders and guardians of deaf communities.Unfortunately I often find myself the ONLY teacher that attends the deaf events such as coffee nights and social events hosted by clubs of the deaf. I would imagine their reasons but they wouldn't be good enough for me as a profoundly deaf person.I also have my own experiences in dealing with struck-up teachers. For example, when I encounter my old teachers from my home area...they wouldn't talk to me or face me. They do, and I do mean that when I say it..look down on the deaf. They would not even want to be in the same room with me when they disocvered that I am coming because now that I obtained the college degrees and can stand up for me..as opposite to the time of being a skinny teenager being under their thumb. I would give them a hell of a run and they dont want to deal with this. I do mean it literally when they scambled for the exits when I show up. And that was three years ago!
Dixie, The nuns at a private oral school remain the same: as affectionate as ever. Hearing teachers at a residential school were sour grapes. There wasonly one deaf teacher who treated me like a friend.
They are good teachers as we always knew so we aren't their children. They knew us all too well through our records with school. They want to decide who to be friend with as we all do. I do chat with them sometimes, but can't force them as best friends, or closer friend to us as we knew them. Maybe they are old-fashioned to see us new peers?
