Meet our tutor – Ann Croy

Kia Ora 

 My name is Ann Croy.

I have been involved in the Deaf community in Palmerston North, Taranaki, Canterbury in the NZ conference for the Deaf from pre-school right through to adults.

Learning NZSL gives hearing people insight into the NZ Deaf community and enables Deaf people to communicate with hearing people building a more inclusive society. As more New Zealanders learn NZSL, one of our countries official languages, a distinct Aotearoa identity is built.

Note: Ann is Deaf but communicates through lip reading and can audibly speak words so you can communicate with her before learning to sign – she also has a small hearing dog that will be with her
