About the Presenter:
Peggy Huber, MA, CI & CT, is an interpreter in practice for over 30 years, has a Master Of Arts degree with concentrations in Deaf Studies, literacy for Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing students in Special Education, and Linguistics with an emphasis in Teaching English as a Second Language. In her thesis, she compared factors found in English classes in direct and interpreted settings at the college level. Her linguistic study of English and ASL have led to practical insights in language forms for use in a variety of settings. She is currently the Itinerant Interpreter and consultant for the Los Angeles Unified School District. Her position has allowed an interface with administrators, DHH teachers, DHH students and fellow K-12 interpreters, providing a unique opportunity for networking, meaningful discussions regarding best practices and policy as well as work side-by-side with the most effective interpreters LAUSD has to offer. Further, her focus, training and independent study on interpreting in the K-12 setting as well as networking with educational interpreters on a national level has provided a broad resource base for theory and best practices for interpreters working in this unique setting, one in which the future of Deaf people depends.
Peggy has been a supporter of the rights of Deaf Community Members throughout her 30+ year career. She believes that supporting interpreters in Southern California is one of the most effective ways to support the Deaf Community.
To this end she has been a volunteer leader of Southern California Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf (SCRID) since 2001. She was on the Bylaws Committee and helped develop the 2015 revision of the SCRID bylaws as well as revised the Policies and Procedures Manual over the last 5 years as each area of leadership has developed.
