Students Greet Deaf Teacher in Sign Language Each Day
Kim Peyton thought it’d be a fun way to promote inclusion in the class.
A group of New Jersey second graders are already fluent in sign language.
Kim Peyton, who is deaf, began teaching her special education and general ed students sign language in September of last year.
She thought it’d be a fun way to promote inclusion in the class.
“My students can sign because it became part of our school day,” Peyton told InsideEdition.com. “They embraced the visual and wanted to learn the language and they thought it was fun and cool.”
In a cute video, each of her students can be seen greeting her in sign language on the first day of school.
They start each day with students lining up to sign with Peyton. And she said the kids love it.
“We wanted to start the day on a positive note by letting the students know they are loved and they will have an amazing day,” Peyton said.
Peyton hopes the video will inspire others to become familiar with sign language. The teacher said she’d love to see sign language offered as a language elective in schools eventually.
“Why not give the kids everything? It's a win-win,” she added.
