In A Nutshell
I am a Medical Interpreter for the Deaf. I also teach English as a Second Language to a primarily Portuguese population, as well as American Sign Language to senior citizens through the BOLLI program at Brandeis University. For many years I was a Clinical Teacher of the Deaf within hospitals and speech and hearing clinics. In addition, I also supervised the Clinical Practicum of undergraduate and graduate students as the Clinical Instructor in the Department of Communication Disorders at Boston University.
The One I Am Looking For
I value discussions and communication as well as honesty. I don't play game's or hold grudges and forgive easily. So I am looking to find the same qualities in a partner. I am a fan of verbal word play, be it joking, riffing, puns, gentle sparing or light sarcasm. Humor is a must on a daily basis! Travel and exposure to other cultures brings me joy. I once spent 15 months traveling throughout Western and Eastern Europe in a motorhome on a research trip and was able to use, sometimes well and sometimes badly, Spanish, Italian French, German, Yiddish, American Sign Language and crude gesturing! I have close deaf friends as well as others from different countries. I think it is important to read. I enjoy Medieval English history and anything with a medical or scientific bent. My parents were competitive Latin dancers. My father taught his daughters all manners of ballroom dancing. Except the Tango. I would love to find someone who would be willing to take up the challenge!
I'd Just Like to Add
I feel kissing is a lost art! I enjoy long sessions of kissing as well as other expressions of affection. Daily hugs are a must. Holding hands in public or a shoulder hug, even at 'our age,' is welcomed. as is physical intimacy in private!
