About Jessie L.

I am an American Sign Language teacher at a private school in Pennsylvania. I began this job after moving up north from Tampa, FL where I taught ASL at the University of Tampa! I grew up signing and have grown my passion into my career! I made history by being the first person to perform the National Anthem in American Sign Language for the Philadelphia Flyers and have performed for the Tampa Bay Rays and Reading Phillies as well. I have made it my life goal to teach as many people ASL as I can to add to the Deaf Community and spread awareness about deafness and Deaf Culture.

I teach ASL levels 1-5 and can teach as fast or slow as necessary! I can't wait to get to know you and show you my passion for this wonderful language and culture!

Outside of ASL I am also an English teacher and SAT/ACT tutor (English/Writing sections). I excel with helping people bring out their creative and imaginative sides while teaching grammatical structures and rules.

Feel free to send me a message with any questions you may have!
