    IESDB Teacher of the Hearing Impaired: 
    Cortney Pardun
    My name is Cortney Pardun, the Total Communication teacher for the outreach preschool at the CDA Early Learning Center.  I have worked for Idaho Educational Services for the Deaf and the Blind in outreach for the past 8 years.  I love working for this amazing program developing language and literacy for students who are deaf and hard of hearing.  I have hearing loss myself and have learned to use all modes of communication and many tools to make sure that I have access to communication daily.  If I am not in the classroom, you will find me outside hiking with my husband and two dogs.

About the Class:

  • The Coeur d'Alene School District has a close relationship with Idaho Educational Services for the Deaf and Blind (IESDB).  IESDB runs a preschool within our District that provides a setting for 3-5 year old hearing impaired students.  Here young students receive instruction through sign language and voice with a small group in a quiet setting.  Contact Cortney Pardun for more information.
