The best teachers are those that know the content like the back of his/her own hand and enjoy sharing it with others. I taught ASL classes for a number of years in my local community. We even made the newspaper! Students left with a grasp on ASL, American Sign Language, and with stories to tell about how he/she learned from mistakes. ASL is one of those languages that one wrong hand shape or wrong location can make a "sign"...well...even more fun. We will learn in a real world environment. What do you need to know for the place you will use the language? We will do that. If you are an interpreting student, we will work on your weak areas. Most often a strong language base will fix a lot of interpreting errors. Bolstering the vocabulary base gives a person the freedom to play with the language and enjoy it. Let's make it happen for you.
For those that need to know, I do have a BS degree in ASL interpreting, an AAS in ASL interpreting, and a certificate in Deaf Studies as well as the RID: NIC certification for interpreters and am a SC:L (legal) candidate for certification. I know what I'm doing. WINK!
The Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf, Inc. (RID), a national membership organization, plays a leading role in advocating for excellence in the delivery of interpretation and transliteration services between people who use sign language and people who use spoken language. In collaboration with the Deaf community, RID supports our members and encourages the growth of the profession through the establishment of a national standard for qualified sign language interpreters and transliterators, ongoing professional development and adherence to a code of professional conduct.+ Read More
