Kathryn Montoya, Haiti Deaf Academy founder and Missionary to the Deaf, served as the Haiti Deaf Academy Executive Director. With over 30 years of experience of impacting the deaf world wide, Kathryn committed her time and energy to this project. Her passion for the Haiti Deaf Academy grew out of too many first hand experiences with deaf children in Haiti having no access to or hope for an education, followed by a lifetime of dependence for some and starvation for others.

Having adopted a deaf daughter with no communication skills, she knew the value of early development of communication skills and education taught in the deaf child’s heart language, sign language.

Kathryn has a MS in Deaf Education, a BS in Educational Interpreting and is a nationally certified interpreter with the Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf (RID). Her RID certificates include, NIC, CI, CT.
