SignWriting List
May 26, 2004

Dear SW List and James!
Thanks for telling us that SignWriting is helping your Deaf students
learn Spanish. That is good news. I only wish the Managua School for
the Deaf would follow your lead!

And below...James started two schools for the Deaf in
Nicaragua, and they need a volunteer teacher for this summer...Anyone
interested? Please write to the List, or write directly to James, to
discuss traveling to Nicaragua to help:

I wish you all the luck in finding teachers....
