"I am a teacher with the Deaf and Hard of Hearing program at Berks County Intermediate Unit. I teach children ages six through twelve.

On May 2, my class was fortunate to see a mime performance given by Michelle Wasik. It was an excellent show for the children in my class since it was all visual.

From the start, Michelle had the children entranced in her Sunflower skit. Then she had each of the children come to her stage and become part of the performance. Some of the children thought for sure she had to know sign language since her body and facial expressions were so clearly speaking to them.

It was wonderful watching these deaf children enjoy the show. Their faces were bright with excitement and anticipation. For the first time all year, I think I could have heard a pin drop in the room. It was a wonderful experience for all."
