seminars for itp students and practicing interpreters

'Tis the Season: Christmas & Religious Signs 2019

During  this seminar we will have fun with the ways to interpret modern  Christmas music as well as some old Christmas songs that are often sung  during the holiday season. Attendees will have the opportunity to  practice interpreting songs using some of the religious signs that we  will discuss during the seminar.

We will discuss various  religious signs from the Christian perspective. Attendees will also  watch videos of Deaf performers. Then we will work in groups to form an  interpretation of Christmas songs.

 Presenter: Angie Allen

Angie  has been married for 28 years to her high school sweetheart, Jameson  and they have four grown children and four grandchildren. She was born  in Olathe, KS which is where she began her journey of learning Sign  Language as well as Deaf Culture. In 1999, Angie started attending First  Baptist Church of Arnold, MO which had an established Deaf ministry.  She fell in love with church interpreting. With support and  encouragement from the Deaf congregation, she studied to become a  certified Interpreter. 

Angie began freelance and educational  interpreting after receiving her certification from MICS in 2005.  Currently she works as a Video Relay Interpreter for Sorenson  Communications.

Her love for the Deaf community and Interpreters  has grown into her passion/ministry. She desires to see interpreters  improve their skills and develop strategies to be able to withstand the  trials that come along with our profession, especially in church  interpreting. Angie also enjoys facilitating Soul Care Retreats and has  had the opportunity to travel around the globe to share her passion with  Interpreters and Deaf alike.
