I have been teaching the beautiful language of American Sign Language (ASL) for over 20 years at many venues. I have taught at a public high school and a private middle school and high school. I also have taught at a teen center, recreation and park centers-ages 6 months (baby and me)--to adults, afterschool/in-school programs at public and private schools for ages preschool to 6th grade. I also have taught adults through an adult education program. I have taught many homeschoolers, as well, privately and in groups. I have taught using Zoom and I am very familiar with its functions.

I worked for GLAD (Greater Los Angeles Agency on Deafness) as a job counselor, advocate and ASL interpreter for Deaf and Hard of Hearing individuals. 

I graduated with my BA from California State University, Northridge, which was a huge Deaf Studies and ASL program. I have 50 post graduate units in special education and world languages. I also got my Teaching Credential in Multiple Subjects from CSUN.

I started an ASL program at a private high school from the ground up and created the entire curriculum for ASL 1,2,3, getting all three approved by the University of California, A-G high school graduation requirements. ASL is not English, and I will teach your children the proper way to sign in ASL, as well as teach about the rich and amazing Deaf culture, Deaf community and Deaf history. 

I will move at the pace of the students in my classes. I love teaching through games and activities to engage and enlighten my students. I am also a published author.

Homework will entail studying on your own time, so you can review everything that you have learned. If students are looking for academic credit, that can be discussed with the teacher. 
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
We will be watching some YouTube videos of people signing and viewing some websites related to the subject matter. This information will be screen shared.  Short children's books will be read by the teacher to introduce the learners to a variety of situations involving Deaf people, and Deaf culture. A packet is in the files that needs to be printed out prior to day one of class. An option is to use a separate device to view the packet contents. PDF are provided.
