Staff Spotlight - Robyn Kirk

My job as a teacher for kids who are deaf or hard of hearing keeps me busy during the school year. I continue to work and live in Twin Cities and I enjoy working with all sorts of families whose children have cochlear implants or hearings and are learning to talk.

In my spare time, I love to stay active. I've been running, playing broomball, taking salsa lessons, knitting, cross country skiing, reading and trying new restaurants as much as possible. This past year, I've made it back to Hayward in every single season but I'm convinced that summer is still the best. At camp I'm the office manager and also instruct on the waterfront and help coordinate programming.
