This workshop deals with ethics in interpreting and will focus specifically on educational interpreters. Interpreters will learn how to transition smoothly into a class making teachers feel less anxiety about having an adult in their classroom. The participants will learn techniques that help build a strong working relationship with other coworkers at the same time.

They learn to apply new techniques and approaches to get materials they need before the school year begins.

• Devise methods to lessen anxiety of teachers when working with interpreters in the classroom.
