There is a new resource available that has been created by the Texas Deaf and Hard of Hearing Network called TxDHH Learning Bites. It is a resource designed to help with Professional Development that can happen wherever you may be. It was created to meet the needs of professionals seek to spend a few minutes of their time growing their knowledge base or who are already doing their own professional development outside of work hours, but have no way of documenting, or receiving credit for that work. TxDHH Learning Bites will be a weekly publication that contains resources that can take as little as 1 minute to review, or provides opportunities to spend an extended amount of time learning about various topics that meet professional needs. We hope you enjoy reading the TxDHH Learning Bites. To access the TxDHH Learning Bites weekly update, click here!
Deaf and hard-of-hearing students attending Rochester Institute of Technology’s National Technical Institute for the Deaf will benefit from enhanced educational and career opportunities in the environmental sciences, thanks to a memorandum of understanding (MOU) between the college and the Environmental Protection Agency.
The MOU was formalized during a “virtual” signing ceremony Sept. 12, with representatives from both RIT/NTID and the EPA connecting through live video conferencing.
The purpose of the MOU is to increase cooperation between RIT/NTID and the EPA in areas of mutual interest, including promoting equal opportunity in higher education, contributing to RIT/NTID’s capacity to provide high-quality education, and encouraging the participation of RIT/NTID in EPA programs.

Analynn Serrano has been the deaf education teacher at Crutchfield Elementary school for three years.
She spends most of her days in this classroom mastering the art of communication with her students using her hands.
But sometimes that can serve as a challenge.
"And I think that we do a good job with having access to language here on campus," Crutchfield Elementary deaf education teacher Analynn Serrano said. "I've got pictures and labels on everything. I don't know if you noticed the school that I've got labels and pictures on everything."
Serrano teaches six students from grades kindergarten to fourth grade on a variety of subjects.
