I have been part of the Deaf world most of my life. I learned sign 20 years ago and have since then been part of the Deaf/ HOH community. I have taught sign language several times over the course of 20 years. I've taught parents of Deaf children, hard-of-hearing individuals, and children who wanted to learn because of a Deaf sibling or other family member. I've taught in a Deaf school as well.
About Jamie R.

Hello! My name is Jamie. I have worked with the Deaf in some compacity for the past 20 years. I am fluent in ASL. For 16 years I taught both Deaf and hearing children in school. I have also taught Deaf and hearing young adults on a college level. I have taught sign language a number of times over the past several years to both individuals and groups of people. One of the reasons I became involved with the Deaf and had a desire to teach them is because I myself am hearing-impaired. I was 9 years old when I found out that I had a mild hearing loss. It has gradually worsened over the years to the point that I have about 20% of hearing in one ear and about 65% left in the other. It's been quite an adjustment and quite the journey to where I am today. But, I love who I am and what I do. Though I'm not currently teaching in a school, I do love teaching the Deaf and teaching hearing folk how to sign and communicate with the Deaf. Do you have a desire to learn sign language because of a Deaf family member or friend or coworker? Have you suddenly found yourself thrust into the Deaf world and aren't sure what to do? Do you have a group of people, maybe a church that would like to start a Deaf ministry and need to learn the language? Or a group of friends who just want to learn for the fun of it? Would you like to learn for the possibility of using it in a future career? Then please allow me the opportunity to teach you! I can teach anyone at any age. I will share bits of Deaf culture in my lessons. We will find fun stuff to do to ensure you are able to practice and use the language. Thank you so much for taking the time to read my bio. I hope you will let me teach you!!
