The Delineation of the Educational Interpreter’s Role: Where and How do *You* Draw the Line?
by Richard Brumberg, B.A., CI/CT, NIC
0.2 PS CEUs
For interpreters in K-12 settings who face situations that cross a boundary, the interpreters will explain their role with concepts like BACK-OUT (of a situation), DRAW-THE-LINE (between me and the consumer), THINK-SELF (“It’s up to you.”) and NOT-MY-BUSINESS. Yet, when talking about necessities of educational settings, these very same interpreters will assert how critical it is to create rapports with the Deaf student(s) and hearing consumers. These competing thoughts leave these interpreter in a quandary. What, then, is the balance between establishing healthy relationships and keeping your distance in the classroom setting? Where should the interpreter draw the line? What kind of line should be drawn? Most importantly, once the role is clear in the interpreter’s mind, how can he/she explain this delineation to all stakeholders in the educational setting. This two-hour webinar will explore these issues and offer possible solutions through a synthesis of established research and first-person experiences/responses.

Scarborough Faire Renaissance Festival Interpreters
Deaf Awareness Day at Scarborough Faire will be on April 20, 2013. As in the past we need interpreters to interpret the shows and we have a few new additions.
You do not have to be certified to participate, just have good interpreting skills. If you think you qualify you can reach me at email@example.com The time is really close and due to my surgeries I have not gotten this out as early as I should have.
If you decide to participate you will be expected to be at the “Fairegrounds” from opening to closing. And for your participation you will receive a T-shirt (which we will wear on the 20th), a drink coupon, a food coupon, and a ticket to get into Scarborough Faire at another time.
For those of you who have participated in the past I look forward to seeing you there. For those of you who have never “played” with us, I look forward to meeting you. If you are not sure you can come – talk to me and together we can decide. Some of you who have interpreted in the past have a favorite show you would like to do. Let me know and I will schedule you. Remember first come first serve.
