About Hilary R.
I have been a Sign Language Interpreter for 9 years. I have two kids. My 3-year-old daughter has Down syndrome and knows about 120 signs. I love ASL and believe it is more than just a language. When I first began learning ASL I lived at a residential school for Deaf children and was taught solely by Deaf people. I am patient and understanding, however, I have high expectations for students.Show More
