I am a teacher at a USA Deaf school. I'm curious if there is a Deaf community in the area. Would there be any job opportunities for a science and math teacher who knows English as well as American Sign Language?

Check with Stella Maris School in Belize City. They have program for the deaf. I believe it is the only one in Belize. They also publish a book of Belizean Sign Language.

My roomie in BC was here doing an internship with hearing impaired students at Stella Maris and I can pm you her email if you would like to get in touch. She is back in the states but loved the experience

I would love to have the contacts. Problem is I can not leave the states other than a vacation for 15 yrs. :-(
I know our student government group at OSD (Oklahoma School For The Deaf) could possibly be interested in sending supplies the school might need.
