I started learning the basics of ASL when I was two years old. The language became a passion of mine and I continued to learn through Dr. Bill Vicars online university, attending ASL meetups with deaf individuals, and taking a community college course. I've taught classes focused on American Sign Language storytelling and art to 5-6 and 10-12 year olds at a homeschool coop and had students present an ASL story to their parents at the end of the year program.
