Hello Mohamed! This is so interesting. Although your teachers were a
little worried that maybe the deaf students would
fail...instead...the deaf students responded wonderfully, practiced
reading and writing, and did well...
That is great news!
I know Cecilia Flood in Albuquerque, New Mexico, also told me the
same thing. The teachers were a little nervous, but the students
started teaching the teachers, and learned very quickly! And then
the teachers could relax and enjoy the experience...
