- Levels Taught:
To give you an idea of my strong involvement in the deaf world, I am a graduate student of MA in ASL Teaching from Gallaudet University, the only university for the deaf in the world. I grew up at a residential school for the deaf with ASL as my primary language all my life. I have a deaf sister and I am a proud mother of two sons who are in the interpreting world. I worked as an advocate for the deaf to assure that the deaf individuals are treated equally for last 9 years. I hope to work with you on enriching your signing skills! 😊
- Teaches students:
- Ages 5+ and special needs
- Teaching since:
I am a graduate student of MASLED program at Gallaudet University. I am proud to say that the quote, MASLED graduates is the “ASL army” is mentioned by our Gallaudet University President, Bobbi this year. It reflects how we take our language, ASL seriously and protect ASL as our unique language.
I am the mother of 3 adult sons and two of them are interpreters for the deaf. I also have a deaf sister. I grew up in residential school for the deaf with ASL as my primary language. I had been teaching ASL all my life to my friends, relatives and neighbors. A few of them went on to become interpreters. I taught classes at various sites such as employment places on deaf sensitivity training and ASL classes.
I am easy going and put students at ease by discussing our favorite subjects such as pets, hobbies or family. Once the students feel comfortable, they are ready to learn!! 😊
Give me a chance and you won’t regret it.
