To give you an idea of my strong involvement in the deaf world, I am a graduate student of MA in ASL Teaching from Gallaudet University, the only university for the deaf in the world. I grew up at a residential school for the deaf with ASL as my primary language all my life. I have a deaf sister and I am a proud mother of two sons who are in the interpreting world. I worked as an advocate for the deaf to assure that the deaf individuals are treated equally for last 9 years. I hope to work with you on enriching your signing skills! 😊

I've been teaching American Sign Language for 5 years, and signing myself for 18 years, and my students have gone on to develop a love for ASL, Deaf people, and Deaf culture. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to carry on a simple conversation in the language, and as time goes on you'll be able to feel totally at ease with Deaf people. I have great online tools you can use for free to practice between lessons, and I'm flexible with any other resources we use. I can't wait to meet you!
