Deaf Education

 

DL

 

My name is Debra Lack.  I am an educator of the Deaf.  I work with students from various backgrounds and with various hearing levels.  I use everything from fluent ASL to multi-modal communication systems to reach my students.  Although I have learned some basic troubleshooting of hearing technology and advocate for my student to use it, I am not an audiologist.  The very talented and knowledgeable professionals in the ARU are in charge of that aspect of the Deaf Education department.  My focus is on helping others have access to communication and I thrive on seeing them make those human connections with the world around them.  I have a strong passion for empowering others to succeed.  I am fluent in ASL and an honorary member of the Deaf community.  I  practice Kyokushin karate, am a sci-fi nerd (books, movies, TV shows, you name it!), and love anything NASA.  I had aspirations of becoming an astronaut and am proud (and jealous) of my husband for recently getting a job at JPL.  I have a strong passion for helping others have access to communication and for empowering others to succeed.
