Ms. Kei-Che excitedly returns to the Bay Area after 10 years. She joined the Glenview family in September 2020, during 100% distance learning/COVID-19. She loves the virtual community being made accessible for all students and families.
She, too, is Deaf and hails from the Midwest. She received her BA in Public Health: Women's Health from the University of Northern Iowa. She aspires to be a midwife for Deaf women one day.
Ms. Kei-Che was inspired to become a TOD after founding STEPS by Kei-Che, Songs To Enhance People Signing, five years ago in Waterloo, Iowa. Her vision is to bridge the gap between the Deaf and hearing communities as she is passionate about intentional inclusion.
In her leisure, she enjoys Slam Poetry and "signing" to music. Ms. Kei-Che volunteers as the Vice President of Inclusion Connection and continues to raise awareness of Deaf pride/culture/experiences. Ms. Kei-Che has been developing youth for more than a decade and is positive that she will continue to make great impacts with OUSD.
