Meet Laura Jackson.


"Hello! I'm Laura Jackson, an instructor in the University of North Florida's ASL/English Interpreting Program. One of the courses that I teach in our blended (hybrid) program is a Mentorship course, and I was looking for mentors to work virtually with students who did not have access to local nationally certified mentors. After posting on the LinkedIn Sign Language Interpreting Mentors group, I was able to recruit one mentor to work with one of my students. The student consistently reports positively in journal entries about the experience, and shares new tips and tricks that the mentor is teaching. I feel very fortunate to have recruited such a willing, caring, and professional mentor through the LinkedIn group! If you are a nationally certified interpreter and you are willing to serve as a mentor for an undergraduate or graduate student in a distance learning program, or if you have the ability to supervise a graduate or undergraduate student for his/her internship, please contact me at Thank you in advance for your consideration!"



If you haven't yet, please join the LinkedIn  Group Sign Language Interpreting Mentors.   There, you can connect with 308 (and growing!) professionals, mentors and mentees.
