Impact of teachers on deaf students
It’s Deaf Awareness Week in Buffalo. Today 7 Eyewitness News spotlighted St. Mary’s School for the Deaf. We met Pamela Roaring. She has been a teacher’s assistant for 25 years and was once a student herself. About 20% of Americans report some sort of hearing loss. That’s according to the Hearing Loss Association of America. One-hundred-and-one students from all eight counties of Western New York attend St. Mary’s at all grade levels.
