Hi Erika, 

thank you very much for your kind message. And thanks for the macro photo of
the insect. 

Today at school we discussed some mouth movement problems and Eduard
mentioned that you would be interested to look at that a second time. So the
students keep your visit of our class in mind. 

The way you showed interest in my teaching method of deaf students has been
an wonderful chance to explore my ideas myself again and again. 

Perhaps some day in the near future we might get in contact with skype? 

All the best 

Stefan ;-)

Happy Birthday Stefan! I don't have the skills to make a beautiful
card the way you do, but I'm attaching a cool macro photo of an
insect! I didn't take it, but now whenever I see such a photo it
reminds me of the way you notice all the interesting small creatures
when you take a walk.

> Stefan Woehrmann is an innovative and brilliant teacher of Deaf students
at the Osnabruck School for the Deaf in Osnabruck, Germany, and because of
Stefan, the mouth movements of Mouthing words, and the visual look of
speech, when speaking words, can be written using SignWriting symbols
combined with some adjustments that Stefan created. Stefan standardized a
way to write Mouthing and Speech. When writing Speech, we call it
Woehrmann's SpeechWriting, and I am so happy and proud of these
developments...the more innovation and new developments the better for the
world, and Stefan has had success with teaching his Deaf students language,
using SignWriting and SpeechWriting, and some of his students are actually
speaking better too, with his total dedication to their education - A great
teacher deserves to be recognized.
