Presented at the 2022 Summit

Remember Your Place

0.3 CEUs, PS PPO

This workshop provides insights on language diversity and the cultural and social issues of native users. Such understanding and awareness that language is both part of the machinery of oppression and a constant cognizant of their social position within hierarchies of power will truly help you as an interpreter be an effective ally to linguistic minorities, including the Deaf community.

Deaf Instructor

Malinda Tran

My name is Malinda Tran. I’m from Chicago, Illinois. As I was growing up, I went to a mainstream school where I learned “SEE” also known as “Signed Exact English.”  I went to high school at Illinois School for the Deaf, learned ASL, and went to college at Gallaudet University.  There I received my Bachelor of Arts and focused on Family and Children Studies with a minor in Spanish.   As I continued my life’s journey, I was given the volunteer opportunity to teach Deaf immigrants.  I was able to teach them to understand and write English, as well as ASL- that was enjoyable for me!  Later on in my journey, I was lead to another teaching opportunity at a college where I became a Master Tutor for the ASL lab classes.  It was WONDERFUL to see students eager to learn and asking so many great and inspiring questions.  Even after that, I was determined to learn more.  I continued my own education to get my Master of Arts degree in Sign Language Education.
