Hello! I am putting together a transition fair/career day for our deaf and hard of hearing students on February 24, 2014 from 9:00am-12:00am. I would love to fill the room with people who are deaf or hard of hearing and successful in their occupation to show our students that people who have a hearing loss can be successful in the work force. If you are interested in participating please let me know. I will be sending out more information the closer it gets.
Unfortunately this is on a volunteer basis and presenters will not be financially compensated. Please do not worry if you do not know sign language. We will have plenty of interpreters on hand.
Date: February 24, 2014
Time: 9:00am-12:00pm (the students will come at 9:30 to 11:30 but you can get there early to set up)
Fort Bend Annex Building (Auditorium)
3119 Sweetwater Boulevard
Sugar Land, Texas 77479
If you know of any other professionals who have a hearing loss that would be interested in participating, please forward on this email or have them contact me. Thanks! Please contact me at Samantha.Geiger@fortbend.k12.tx.us
