Introducing myself

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone!

 

I am Kelly from Manchester and I am 24 years old. I'm studying a Masters degree in Psychology. I started learning sign language last year during lockdown and completed the BSL beginners course. I am also an online english teacher for chinese children and we are encouraged to use TPR (total phsyical response) so communicating with our bodies.

This encouraged me to continue learning BSL and use it when I teach. I'm currently practicing nursery rhymes, children's songs and reading books like the hungry caterpillar and dear zoo. I've also decided to start writing 4+ sentences weekly about what I will be doing that week and learn it in sign language to encourage myself to learn full sentences and maybe some less common words. 

In the future I would love to be confident enough to communicate with others in sign language. I am a qualified teacher and specialised in SEN aiming to become an educational psychologist one day, so I want to make sure when I go back into a classroom I create an inclusive and supportive environment for all students. 😃

It was quite frightening as I couldn't really communicate with people although I could understand. I found people made assumptions about what was going on particularly Doctors and medical staff. I don't ever want to be made to feel like that again. Or, indeed , be treated like that again. I am now at a time in my life where I have a bit more time to learn so h
