Welcome! My name is Sheilah and I am excited to sign with you! In my classes, you will be exposed to Deaf culture and, of course, American Sign Language! I am proud to say that I grew up in the Deaf community and worked as an interpreter for many years; I now just focus on teaching ASL. In my classes, you can expect to be engaged with one another and encouraged. You're learning a new language that belongs to an incredible community! That is something to be incredibly proud of! Plus, I've heard sign language comes in pretty "handy".

I absolutely loved my experience taking shelyas classes. Every time I come to class I’m always very excited, the class room setting is just so fun and friendly. Not only that but I’ve learned such a large amount of signs from her. I’ve improved in my receptive skills, story telling, and vocab in general. I would 100% recommend!!
Tracy
I am excited to learn . It takes me awhile to remember things but I feel like 30 minutes is a good enough amount of time for just enough material that I'm not overwhelmed. Love the instructor and her patience.

Shelia is an amazing teacher and very interactive with her students. She is always willing to teach you any sign you wish to learn and allow her students to practice their sign with eachothers. I enjoy her class everytime and feel confident after every class of her I join. Thank you Shelia I am getting better and better after each of your class. !!

Hello There!

I am a Deaf ASL instructor, and I've been teaching since 2015. I've enjoying to see my students develop a sense of ASL, which is a beautiful and visual language to learn.

Once you take a few ASL classes, you will build your signs skills to able to converse with Deaf people and learn about Deaf Culture.

I learned ASL from the Deaf Community over 35 years ago so, I understand the cultural aspects of the language in addition to its linguistics. I received my AAS through an interpreter training program in 2010. Since 1998, I have been both an Educational and a Medical Interpreter through various agencies in my area. I am state certified and hold EIPA (Educational Interpreter Performance Assessment) credentials as well.

"I have known Kat for a number of years in both a personal and professional level . Throughout all of my interactions with Kat she has shown herself to be persistent, optimistic and able to handle and multiple task within a wide range of subject areas . One of the greatest personal attributes she holds is empathy. And, this character trait is a benefit to those whom choose to retain her services as an instructor; for, any noteable teaching style must incorporate an ability to be flexible in methodology based on students' academic needs. Kat has gone above and beyond those criteria. I highly recommend her."

What are the Different Types of Sign Languages?

Many people are surprised or even shocked to learn that American Sign Language is not universal. However, when you think about how many spoken languages there are across the globe, it makes sense that sign language would be the same. After all, American Sign language is its own language with its own grammar, idioms, and everything else needed to be a language completely separate from English. Different types of sign language are developed in different regions around the globe, just like spok …
