This action research focuses on decision-making regarding professional and personal ethics in a K-12 educational setting for American Sign Language (ASL)/English Interpreters. The data collected for this research is specific to elementary education in a K-12 setting. In the field of interpreting there are professional organizations that present professional guidelines that must be considered in order to uphold best employment practices. Different employers may also have their own code of ethics and guidelines they expect employees to follow. In addition, each interpreter should have their own personal ethics that they carry with them as well. The goal of this research is to consider how these professional, organizational, and personal ethics and guidelines that are expected of interpreters impact decision-making while working.
