My name is Page Kirby and I have been working as an Educational Sign Language Interpreter for over 6 years now. I received my degree at Western Nevada College in Carson City. Currently I am on assignment in Fernley, Nevada, which is about an hour north of where I originally grew up, Gardnerville.

Imagine being in a classroom where you are unable to hear what people are saying. In addition to this, you cannot communicate what you want to say to others. This reality happens to children who are deaf or hearing-impaired who have been integrated into traditional schools. School districts may have sign language interpreters who they hire for some events, but they are not always part of the school community. Part of the reason this happens is the shortage of sign language interpreters. This leaves a wide gap between the supply and demand in many settings, including schools.

Schools work with students who have special needs to make sure they are able to communicate their needs and understand them. We work with children on this from the time they are little until the time they graduate from high school. This process can be a challenge for a variety of reasons, and it may be easier to do with some students. There are always going to be some individuals who will struggle with this and we must continue to work on ways to help them.
