Hello, my name is Kayleen. I was born deaf. All of my family is hearing. When my parents found out I was deaf, they were devastated. Later, they learned to accept my deafness.

Now, my father is proud to tell everyone that his deaf daughter has a master's degree.

For the past 17 years, I have been teaching math to deaf students.

I received my bachelor's degree from Utah State University and then attended Western Maryland College for my master's.

An introduction to sign vocabulary that is specific to math. Many interpreters, teachers, and students are unfamiliar with specialized sign vocabulary because the concepts occur infrequently in daily communication. In this video a Deaf professional signs vocabulary related to his field of expertise. The signs being demonstrated are commonly accepted by the Deaf community, but may not be the only sign for a specific word. Signs often vary across the country, so viewers are encouraged to confirm that signs used in this video are those used in their area/region of the country. Where appropriate, more than one sign or combination of signs are demonstrated in this video for the same English word.
