Rationale My service activities are primarily linked to my interest areas (as noted in my scholarship goals): education policy, special education, and teacher education. I use these activities to develop a network of colleagues with whom I can collaborate, learn about new research or ideas in the field, and to share my own perspective on ideas (particularly when I am the only educator of the deaf in the room).
