Su Isakson and Rachel Day

 

Welcome to the Sandbox!  Come learn and play with your colleagues: Hearing and Deaf Interpreters and Advanced ASL Students.  This training will be conducted in American Sign Language.

This workshop will encourage interpreters to explore the concepts of identity and privilege, and how these play an important role in coloring our interpretation by way of the interpreting process.  Through guided self-analysis activities, interpreters will reflect on their ethnic, religious and social construct identities, and how these factors contribute to the unique lens in which we perceive the world as well as identify our power and privilege. Through group activity and discussion, participants will be asked to practice ethical decision-making in which our identities, beliefs and privilege are acknowledged.


Participants are encouraged to bring:

-          a designated notebook for this series

ABOUT THE PRESENTERS

Su Isakson, NIC, Ed:K12, is a freelance interpreter working in the Anchorage area since 2007.  Raised multilingual in several spoken and signed languages, and the daughter of a military linguist, it is no surprise she’s made her career in interpretation. Su trained with Betty Colonomos at her Foundations of Interpreting Series I-VIII, studying to become an IMI (Integrated Model of Interpreting) practitioner, as well as The Etna Project studying Process Mediation. Currently she teaches ASL as an adjunct instructor at her alma mater UAA, in addition to serving her second term as AKRID’s President, 2011-2015.  In her spare time she enjoys traveling the world, photography and a good cup of green tea.

Rachel Day is a community interpreter, who is in awe of finding a career she enjoys so much.  She still has much to learn and is eagerly looking forward to a lifetime of studying languages and the world at large.  Rachel is grateful to the Deaf community for their patience with her. Rachel attended an ITP in Santa Fe, New Mexico and completed her BA at Alaska Pacific University.  Since then, she has had the opportunity to work in the K-12, post secondary, community, video relay, Deaf-Blind, theater settings and International assignments that have taken her to Denmark, Taiwan, South Africa, and Nepal.  While at home and abroad, Rachel has had the privilege of being a member of Deaf/Hearing teams.
