Hi! I’m Caleb Thorn, I’m a born and bred in Auckland. New Zealand Sign Language is my first language. During my school years I attended Kelston Deaf Education Centre where NZSL is the primary language.
I have been an NZSL tutor for 8 years. Early in my career I helped establish The Auckland Deaf Youth Group (ADYG). I worked as a youth worker with Deaf Aotearoa through ADYG. I was a committee member as well as their acting chairperson for a short time. My passion is working with Deaf / Hard of Hearing youth all over Aotearoa. My current role has lead me to Wellington where I can continue my passion working for Van Ash Deaf Education.
When I am not teaching NZSL you will most likely find me playing sports, spending time with my family and friends or computer gaming.
