All about me...
My name is Miss Rowles. I am an itinerant teacher for the deaf and hard of hearing. What?! You may be wondering what it is that I do. If you see me around the school you may even think that I work there. I travel from district to district and school to school within the county. I provide services for students who have varying levels of hearing loss. Some students may need more support than others! I am here to support both the students and the teachers who are working with them.
Sometimes I may come into your classroom to see how my student is working with their peers and participating in class. Other times, I may pull my student to work with them on one on in a more ideal listening environment. Don't get scared- I am not the teaching police. Most of the time I am more concerned with the student than the teacher. I am not there to judge your lesson or tell you how to teach only to provide resources and tips for working with a student who is deaf or hard of hearing.
Depending on the student I may be there to help maintain their FM equipment. I work closely with a few school audiologists to keep the students' equipment working without a hitch. This is why the teachers have all of my contact information. Keep in mind that I travel and it may take me a few minutes, hours, or a day to get to your building to help with your problem.
