Thank you so much for sharing this information.
On many occasions, I have been asked to explain this phenomenon which is known as Deaf Pride. After all, people ask, how could someone possibly be proud of what appears to be nothing more than a disability? On top of that, deafness is a disability which affects communication So what's there to be proud of?
If you had asked me this question many years ago, I would have been hard-pressed to come up with an answer. What about all those times in mainstream school when I had to give up and simply say "I don't know"because I couldn't understand the teacher?
What about all those times I was made fun of? What about all those times when I was put in an audiologist's booth like a guinea pig? In fact, as a youngster I was downright embarrassed. That is, I was embarrassed until I got a chance to join Deaf culture.

I may have joined it late, after years of unsuccessfully trying to be a hearing person, but the old cliche' is true: Meeting other deaf peers like myself, sharing similar stories of oppression and ridicule, swapping humorous anecdotes, learning ASL, and seeing other deaf adults succeed has completely changed my attitude.
I am no longer ashamed of my deafness, I am proud of it. I am proud of who I am, proud of what I've overcome, and proud of my culture.
Yes, I recognize there is a Deaf culture. Some people may be groaning, "oh no, not that old culture vs. As my past would indicate, that can certainly be true. On the other hand, there are also people out there who adamantly insist that there is a Deaf culture, that deafness is not a handicap at all swearing by the popular motto that "deaf people can do anything You can choose whatever side of the argument you want, but I prefer to take somewhat of a middle stance.
My own definition is that: Being a part of this culture has given me a sense of pride. I am no longer alone.
I share a language, ASL, with many other people in the Deaf community. I share a history of struggle which is well-documented; not only are stories related to growing up deaf passed along within the Deaf community, but there are countless books as well my personal favorite is Jack Gannon's Deaf Heritage.
I enjoy attending plays and community events which focus on many Deaf issues. I also share many of the mannerisms of other Deaf people: Last but not least, I bask in pride when I see Deaf people becoming more and more successful in the world.
There are those who insist that Deaf culture "shelters" Deaf people from the real world a frequent argument seen on the internetbut from my perspective, it strengthens us and enables us to make the most of both worlds.
More and more Deaf people are getting advanced degrees and becoming doctors, lawyers, administrators, and ahem authors. It is a feeling of pride and support which pushes us on. In my case, it was seeing the successful outcome of the Deaf President Now movement which spurred me on to transfer to Gallaudet University and set my goals higher than I ever did before.
So yes, as far as I'm concerned, there is such a thing as Deaf Pride. It exists for me, and it's the spark which changed my life.

The most important thing to understand here is that this is NOT referring to the teacher demonstrating anything. The people demonstrating here are your students.. This one of the most exciting and important moments. It’s the moment where the ideas the students have activated in their minds are beginning to form their conclusions.
