Although I've never interpreted for a whole class before I think I would prefer to be with just one student. And that's not because it's easier! Trust me, it can still be a lot of work to be with only one student.
For my job I actually don't interpret in all of his classes. He is hard of hearing and has hearing aids so I mainly just interpret in the classes that are in bigger rooms or if the teacher is soft spoken. For the rest of the classes I sit and wait and listen to the lesson in case something wasn't clear for my student and then I will interpret it for him.
On a side note, since I mentioned that it's very important to be comfortable with your interprerter I would like to add that today during a presentation he totally fell asleep for about 10-15 minutes and when he woke up I signed to him "you know I can see you sleeping right?" and he just nodded his head and fell asleep again for about five more minutes. I just kept on interpreting the presentation incase he woke up! So I think it's safe to say he feels comfortable with me, either that or he just doesn't care about the presentation hahaha
I love this blog. I've only been doing it for a few months and I don't get a ton of page views but that's not what's important to me. What's important to me is that I should do something because I love it and enjoy it so that's why my blog is going to continue.
The only thing that is going to change is that I will only be putting up posts on Wednesdays. I wish that I could do two posts a week and I would love to do that but, since I'm working the full time interpreting job and a part time job at my families business, it's just too much.
I do set certain standards for myself with each post I do and I don't want to do something half heartedly or rushed, upload it and then be unhappy with what I posted. I want to make sure that I'm happy with what I post and the quality of what I post.
This blog is still fairly new and I'm still trying to figure everything out so THANK YOU for sticking around while I do that!
And remember - you can follow me on Twitter and/or Instagram, both @thrucaitseyes, for updates or just to see what I'm up to!
Thank you for stopping by today and I'll see you on Wednesday!
