UK charity picks teacher of the year

Catherine Drew accepting her award
A charity organization called Signature has picked a London sign language teacher as its teacher of the year. Catherine Drew teaches at the Frank Barnes School for Deaf Children. A former student nominated her and a ceremony took place in Bloomsbury, a part of the London Borough of Camden. Catherine leads the Deaf studies and BSL courses at the school for not only pupils, but parents and local community members as well. It was her little brother that "knocked on the door of 10 Downing Street" a decade ago "to hand in to the Prime Minister the petition requesting recognition of BSL and outlining the needs of the Deaf Community."
