About Carla D.

Carla teaches: Ages 8 and up
Teaching since: 1998
Last sign in: Yesterday


I have been signing since 1998, spending every chance I can among my Deaf friends and immersing myself in the language as often as possible. I received my BA in Music with a certification to teach at Lubbock Christian University in 1998. Later I attended the Interpreter Certification program at Burlington County College in New Jersey from 2009-2011, and during that time took a summer course at Gallaudet University for the Deaf in Washington DC. Then in 2014 I received my MEd in Curriculum and Instruction with Instructional Technology from Houston Baptist University. I have been teaching ASL at the high school level since 2011. I am also one of the interpreters for the Deaf at my church in Fort Bend County, TX, outside of Houston, where I am a member and actively involved in the Deaf Ministry.

Please feel free to ask me any questions you have. I'm happy to get back with you, and I look forward to teaching you!

· American Sign Language · In studio Carla is an excellent ASL instructor. She is very patient. Each session was filled with one-to-one exercises to help me increase my ASL vocabulary. Carla has a personality that invites questions in a supportive manner. I truly enjoyed all my training sessions.
