Welcome! My name is Sheilah and I am excited to sign with you! In my classes, you will be exposed to Deaf culture and, of course, American Sign Language! I am proud to say that I grew up in the Deaf community and worked as an interpreter for many years; I now just focus on teaching ASL. In my classes, you can expect to be engaged with one another and encouraged. You're learning a new language that belongs to an incredible community! That is something to be incredibly proud of! Plus, I've heard sign language comes in pretty "handy".

About Sheilah M.

My name is Sheilah and I am from Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. I grew up in the Deaf community and started church interpreting at 14, and started interpreting professionally at 18. I worked mainly in the educational setting; however, I also did my own freelancing and love to do musical interpretation. I quit interpreting professionally in 2018 as a QAST level V interpreter, because of a bilateral hearing loss. I love to teach and I love sign language and Deaf culture!

I absolutely loved my experience taking shelyas classes. Every time I come to class I’m always very excited, the class room setting is just so fun and friendly. Not only that but I’ve learned such a large amount of signs from her. I’ve improved in my receptive skills, story telling, and vocab in general. I would 100% recommend!!

I am excited to learn . It takes me awhile to remember things but I feel like 30 minutes is a good enough amount of time for just enough material that I'm not overwhelmed. Love the instructor and her patience.

Shelia is an amazing teacher and very interactive with her students. She is always willing to teach you any sign you wish to learn and allow her students to practice their sign with eachothers. I enjoy her class everytime and feel confident after every class of her I join. Thank you Shelia I am getting better and better after each of your class. !!

I took one of Sheilah’s private Zoom lessons. She had a syllabus and was ready to teach. I enjoyed my session and look forward to more.

I have worked with Sheila since 2014. As a Deaf Education teacher, I was always looking for ways to improve my ASL skills to communicate more effectively with my students. Sheila’s assistance as an interpreter and ASL teacher has been invaluable to me. Over the years she has taught me many subtleties that you can learn from a standard ASL class or dictionary. Her sign language is clear and easy to flow. She is patient with new learners and explains ASL structure well.

Very knowledgeable about signing. It would be help to slow down for those who are brand new and never signed before. Very nice and enjoyed Sheilah and Ash.

Class was held in a conference room at a hotel. The instructors were very clear, and patient. I love how they encourage conversations using the skills we had learned, and were helpful for us to learn new signs during our conversations. The instructors also organized a field trip at the zoo, and encouraged us to learn new signs for animals.

Sheilah is a great teacher. She provides many opportunities for you to practice. She consistently encourages you and your ability. I personally took an online class and she was great! If you have any question she is always happy to answer them. If you want to take ASL lessons with anyone, pick her!
