currently looking for CA colleges.. help??
Hi, i've been looking into colleges the past couple of weeks.
I've been in mainstreamed schools since kindergarten. before then, i was at an all deaf school for pre-k. but anyway, i am currently in my junior year of hs and i want to start visiting colleges.
i live in CA and i was wondering ... i've been wanting to major in english and be an undergrad. for teaching. i've been looking into colleges for that, but i also want to take into consideration the surrounding colleges to Deaf communities.
the reason for this is because all my life, i've been the only Deaf person at every school i attended (elementary, jr. high, and hs). i want to be able to get to know more Deaf people, i do know a few people from when i was in pre-k and a few i grew up with (but they're adults so i can't relate with them as much as i had hoped). umm... i've also been very annoyed with the people i've met at my schools. most have teased me. but a very good amount has treated me like a regular person with of course, a few exceptions. i have a fair amount of people that know ASL, but 95% don't go to school with me because age difference.
so yeah, my goal is to find a good college, whether it has both Deaf and hearing or just hearing or just Deaf, that offers English and Teaching programs and surrounds Deaf communities.
All in CA... thanks for your help in advance!
