New Job!

I've just been offered, and have accepted, a job for the entire school year of 2007-2008. I will be a teachers' assistant at The Learning Center for Deaf Children in Framingham, Massachusetts. My sign language skills have a long way to go but I was able to get through the half hour interview all in sign. It's a bit daunting right now to consider being in one place for 10 months and to be using a foreign language most of the day but I imagine there will be a pretty steep learning curve, at least that's what I hope...

  1. Benny, this is fantastic news! What a great opportunity, and selfishly, I'm pumped to have you in the neighborhood for a bit. Great stuff. Can't wait to hit up the tennis courts w/ some more regularity. See you soon brotha'!

    take care, --ross

    OMG BEN!!!!

    I am so excited that you got the job - you deserved it big time, and it is amazing that you got through the whole interview without the interpreter!

    We knew the Australian air was a great influence on your signing ability!

    Well done, that is awesome.

    Caroline.
