Instructors in 5 American Sign Language—English Interpreter Programs and 4 Deaf Studies Programs in Canada were interviewed and asked to discuss their experiences as educators. Within a qualitative research paradigm, their comments were grouped into a number of categories tied to the social construction of American Sign Language—English interpreters, such as learners’ age and education and the characteristics of good citizens within the Deaf community.
