About Starrla S.

I am an instructor at the local Technology Center. I have been signing since 1990. I started out in a night college class as a junior in high school. My dad told me I needed to get a head start on my college life. I asked him what was I going to take...He opened up the newspaper and there it was...The headlines read...New class to offered, Sign Language. I enrolled the next day and have been signing ever since. I have to say it was difficult at first because I speak english, and all the words like and, but, or, was etc were NOT in the signing vocabulary.

Sign Language is not something you will learn overnight. You also have to practice or you will loose what you have gained. I still to this day practice. I practice while I am driving and well needless to say people stare at me....Oh well at least I know I am retaining my passion. I stay involved with the Deaf community as much as I possibly can. I do have many Deaf friends that well keep me on my toes at times. They like to facetime me and show me a new sign they either made up or someone has showed them and they do not understand why it means what it does. I hope you will give me the opportunity to teach you ASL. It is my passion and I love to see people have an interest.
Thank you and hope to see you soon

Starlla is amazing she is very patient, doesn’t mind me asking all kinds of questions or doubts I may have on the lesson. She has a very positive attitude and makes you feel at ease which helps a lot when you are a beginner.

Starla makes it a point that you understand why certain signs are signed the way that they are and gives examples to make it much easier for you to remember. Patience is what she has a lot of. Trust me, if she can be have patience with me, you got it made in the shade. She will continue to go over and over signs with you until you got it down pat. If you are looking to learn ASL, I highly recommend Starla.

I started to take lessons with Starla in January this year and am so thrilled that I chose her. She a very patient person and if you are having a hard time with anything she will continue to teach you until you "got it". She also likes to have fun mixed in with teaching and that makes it so much easier to learn and have a few laughs at the same time. I just love Starla! She's great!

She was very patient and encouraging throughout the class. Love the fact that I had homework to do on my first class.

Starrla was so very patient with me and I know that she will be a great teacher, I can tell already. I can't wait until our next lesson; I am very excited. She made everything very clear to me and I liked that because I have not practiced in quite a long time and forgot quite a lot but she was able to get my mind on track and I did start remembering some signs. I love ASL!
