Class Experience

Students will learn:
* A song about the White House
* The history of the White House and information regarding people who have lived there
* Lesson vocabulary in American Sign Language
* A step-by-step drawing of the White House
My excitement about American symbols began with travels to Washington, DC. I loved stepping onto the exact spot Martin Luther King Jr. stood for his iconic I Have a Dream speech on the steps on the Lincoln Memorial. Walking through the White House thrilled me as I imagined the historic individuals who had walked its halls. I have enthusiastically taught many first graders about Washington, DC through books, music, and plays. I'm so excited to share American symbols with Outschool students!

My master's degree in special education focused on teaching deaf students. I taught deaf students for more than 10 years, and for part of my career, I was an educational interpreter. I care deeply about the Deaf Community and strive to stay true to American Sign Language in my teaching. 
•	Pencil
•	Black marker (Sharpie is best)
•	Crayons
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
I will assess students through questioning and observation in order to adapt instruction. I will also give the students the chance to report a fact they learned so I can assist them with further information if needed.
1 hour per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
No parental guidance will be needed beyond the class guidelines (keeping cameras on throughout the lesson).

About Me

My classes will be taught from my home among white pines and cedars near Lake Superior in northern Minnesota. You will find me to be a warm, encouraging, and genuine person. I love teaching! Having the privilege of spending my days with children...
