Coleman at Emmys

Rachel Coleman, host of the PBS show Signing Time, was up for an Emmy Award. But she didn't win. The Outstanding Performer in a Children’s Series. That honor went to Bindi Irwin, daughter of the late Steve Irwin for her Discovery Kids show. After Coleman's daughter was born profoundly deaf, Rachel learned ASL and started teaching sign to hearing children through song. She writes all the music for Signing Time. She now lives in Salt Lake City.
