She also shares tales from the classroom gathered over 35 years telling stories to multi-ethnic populations, hearing and deaf.  Aliprantis is the recipient of the NSN ORACLE Service Award, and she was honored at NYC City Hall for “her distinguished body of work.” “Barbara’s stories about her immigrant experience transcend the bounds of one language one culture.”
