Learners will have a rich understanding of the Deaf community, history,  culture, well known Deaf people, Deaf people who changed, or are changing the world, important events in history connected to the Deaf community and people with disabilities, and so much more!
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 and have been on TV and radio for my book: The Autism and ADHD Diet  A Step-by-Step Guide to Hope and Healing by Living Gluten Free and Casein Free (GFCF) and Other Interventions 
Review. Use online sources to assist you with the signs. Watch class videos.
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
