With over 15 years of teaching experience in American Sign Language (ASL), including a decade of direct engagement within the Deaf community, I offer a wealth of expertise. I have successfully taught ASL programs in diverse local settings like preschools, private kindergartens, recreation centers, and libraries. As a parent of a Hard of Hearing child and an Outschool teacher, I recognize the significance of effective communication through signing. My teaching approach prioritizes creating an enjoyable and interactive learning atmosphere, ensuring students acquire essential skills and develop a lifelong passion for ASL. Be assured that no sensitive or high-risk information will be shared in this class.
