Sandra Schroeder, Teacher

Sandra Schroeder was raised in East Texas where at the age of 11 started to interpret through lip reading for her mother, who had permanently lost her voice.  In her teenage years, she was introduced to the deaf culture when asked to take notes for the deaf students in classes.  At that time interpreters and their responsibilities became a tangible reality.

After moving to Colorado with her husband, a native Coloradoan, she continued her interest in signing by taking classes at Pikes Peak Community College, The Center on Deafness and group tutelage from the deaf and active interpreters.  After four years of studying, training, and completing volunteer time in the overall language, Sandra started her seven-year stint as an interpreter for Bible Study Fellowship interpreting music, lectures, and Bible as well as doing special interpreting for functions at other churches and organizations through the years. 

Stepping away from interpreting for 10 years of homeschooling her son through graduation, Sandra picked back up the baton of signing as a teacher, offering classes from a Christian perspective to students who love languages, and has continued teaching this language these past five+ years.  She still interprets on request and especially loves interpreting music.
