I think that is a great idea!

Such a presentation could arranged in 2007...maybe Spring 2007 one  
presentation could be arranged at a school for the Deaf, and if it  
goes well, others can be scheduled, perhaps at MSSD at Gallaudet...we  
could setup a presentation of teachers and Deaf educators who present  
to different would be fun and create some productive
