Parent leaders - Kate Whale

Kate Whale - Wellington, New Zealand

I'm the mother of 5 kids, one is profoundly deaf with cochlear implants, one is deaf in one ear, and three are hearing. All are bilingual at various levels. I have been part of the Committee of Deaf Children NZ for 8 years and President for 6 years. I am also a high school teacher at a boys' school, trying to teach English and Social Studies to teenagers. My hobbies include cleaning, laundry and banging my head against walls.
