Stephanie Farber, LSLS Cert. AVEd Candidate
Teacher of the Deaf
M.S. Deaf Education, Washington University, St. Louis
B.A. Linguistics, Washington University, St. Louis
Stephanie (don’t be alarmed if you see her responding to “Farber”), joined the Desert Voices team as a teacher of the deaf in August 2016. She graduated from Washington University in St. Louis in 2014 with a BA in Linguistics and again in 2016 with a Masters in Deaf Education. She is currently working towards her LSLS certification, works with a nonprofit called Ending All Roads to Silence (EARS) for children with hearing loss in India, and is the Vice President on the board of directors for Arizona’s chapter of AGBell.
Stephanie hails from St. Louis, Missouri where she grew up slipping on ice during bitter winters, eating toasted ravioli and blue velvet cake, and telling jokes for candy on Halloween. She lived in a bilingual household with her parents, younger brother, and dog Storm (who ironically was scared of thunderstorms). When not at Desert Voices, you can find her drawing, reading a good book, and, yes, eagerly awaiting her Hogwarts letter.
