    Love it. About time there is deaf coach for hearing schools. We need to show America that there is no barrier for deaf people to work anywhere. Deaf coach should coach more hearing schools rather than just Deaf Schools alone! Congrats to you. Hands waving in air!!!!

    Thanks everyone. I enjoy myself so far. 🙂


    PS: For traveling basketball team, I need to find more information first before I apply this position. Yeah, it’s another big step for me. Again, thanks.

    Wow.. this is so awesome! L-O-V-E this video!! *thumbs up*

    Not only you have the opportunity to educate some hearing people that we can do it, you are also educating some deaf people that not *all* hearing people are bad. It’s way cool how these people have no problem with you coaching a hearing team. I can imagine quite an awkward for some at first, but things eventually get better as time goes by.

    Positive attitude is what all changes everything for the better so WTG.

    Rock on! Keep us all posted, please! 🙂

    Great role model for deaf person like you. You are right that many deaf adults teach deaf students in residential schools. It’s very common pattern in the deaf world. We, the deaf community, are very proud of you for taking a big challenge in the hearing world. Time to expose hearing people that the deaf person can coach the hearing children. Thumb up!

    Hope you do one more video?
