Isaac Arguelles emigrated from Mexico at the age of five. Having two Deaf parents, Isaac grew up communicating in Mexican Sign Language, Spanish, English, and American Sign Language. He completed the American Sign Language & Interpreting Training Program from Mesa College- from there he began his career in education as a K-12 ASL interpreter for the deaf.
During those years, Isaac pursued his Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies with a specialization in Spanish. Upon completing his BA from San Diego State University, he enrolled in the SDSU Bilingual Cross-Cultural Language and Academic Development multiple subjects teaching credential program. Soon afterwards, Isaac began his career with San Diego State as an ASL interpreter through the Office of Student Disability Services. It was there that Isaac was fortunate to interpret for His Holiness, the Dalai Lama upon his visit to San Diego. Isaac has also worked with SDCCD Interpreter services.
In December 2011, Isaac completed his Master of Science in Rehabilitation Counseling degree through SDSU.
