Custom Made Masks for Teachers


In an effort to create the best environment for the LUM students, customized face masks were created for the LUM teachers. Nina Morgan (pictured) who has provided dozens of face masks for LUM already, made face masks with a clear window displaying the teachers’ mouths (see picture below).

The main reasons for using these customized face masks are:

  • They’re essential for communicating with students with hearing impairments
  • 55% of communication is visual
  • Miscommunication increases when you can’t see someone’s mouth
  • A smile helps a lot

LUM is very grateful for Nina Morgan and all of our mask-makers, including Connie Decker, Linda Lou Prokopy and Jada Haughey.
