    I worked at American School for the Deaf. as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great experience using my ASL skills as well as picking up new ones. Was able to help in classrooms for a variety of ages. Different ways to help out in and outside of the classroom. Loved the kids and being able to interact with them all day. Being able to use my passions and my ASL to reach kids. Learned a lot about what a teaching career would be like in special education or deaf education.

    Cons

    Lack of communication from management to Interns especially with schedule changes.

    Advice to Management

    Wish to see the management outside of orientation. Making yourselves more available would help.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at American School for the Deaf. as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You'll get credit for internship, and you'll know some people you work with. Its a work place with clear diversity of ethnics and ability.

    Cons

    People you work with are mostly volunteers and interns. Fulltime unpaid. You must know ASL if you want the upper hand of communication and trust as some employee are deaf or cant speak. Following others example may get you in trouble, you should set your own professional example.

    Advice to Management

    Should communicate requirements and performance properly.
