My name is Izzy, I am a secondary science teacher who has a fair few pupils who use BSL.
We have our support but I decided I wanted to do more, I wanted to communicate 1to1 with these pupils and find ways that I can describe the world of science to them as I am more then aware BSL is even harder when science is brought in to it.
I have a lovely year 7 pupil who each Friday tests my understanding of key words in science into BSL and then if I can put them in a sentence and he teaches me those with the help of one of the schools signers and I teach him the science!
I have also been working through the online course and loving it, but sometimes I wish I could practice a little bit more with people as practice makes perfect, right?
Look forward to getting to know some of you!
