Greetings ASL students!! I am excited to teach ASL to all of you. In Fall 1979, I began my full-time teaching career at Blair High School in Pasadena Unified School District teaching Deaf/HH students in various subjects. In Spring 1980, I was an adjunct teacher teaching ASL at Pasadena City College (PCC). In Fall 1981, I began my new full-time teaching assignment at the Educational Cultural Complex (ECC) in San Diego Community College District (SDCCD). I taught Deaf/HH students various subjects and Hearing students ASL. In Spring 1982 to approximately 1996, I was an adjunct teacher teaching ASL, Deaf Culture, and Linguistics of ASL at Santa Ana College/Orange Canyon College in Rancho Santiago Community College District. In 1996 I transferred over to Mesa College from ECC and have been teaching various courses such as ASL 1, 2, 3, and 4, Fingerspelled Signs, Deaf Culture and Implications of Deafness. From Fall 1996 to Spring 2018, I have taught ASL 1, 2, 3, and 4, Deaf Culture and Structure of ASL part-time at Grossmont College. I retired from full-time teaching in Spring 2018 but started teaching part-time in January 2019. . Currently I am teaching as a pro-rata instructor teaching online AMSL 150 Deaf Culture year-round at San Diego Mesa College in San Diego Community College District. I am happily married to my Hearing wife, Kathy, of 41 years. I have two grown Hearing children in their 40s. My home is in Big Bear. I love showing my Alaskan Malamutes in dog shows. I have produced six AKC Champions and one who has pointed. I also love to travel with my wife to various places.

I've had several of my lessons with William so far and I'm so very happy that he's my teacher. He is extremely patient and encouraging, and his experience and expertise is great to be able to benefit from.
I don't like writing bad reviews on someone because I don't know what happens on their end? In this case, I waited 15 minutes for William to join the first free session and he never came.
Will was great! This was my first lesson from him and I already learned so much… I am excited to practice and take more lessons with him! Had great patience with me and communication over zoom! Can’t wait for my next lesson, thank you so much!!
