Description

Class Experience

Students will learn ASL vocabulary, grammar, and conversation skills.
**MARK**
My name is Mark and I teach ESL, American Sign Language, literacy, and Business English to all ages. I have taught for over 12 years in public and private schools here in the state of Maine, as well as the past five years online. 

I hold an MBA in Business Administration, BS in Marketing/Management, BS in Early Childhood Education, and teaching licenses for K-12 Special Education in the state of Maine. I also am a certified Special Olympics coach and have been a Little League, YMCA basketball, and Boy Scout volunteer for the past 15 years.

My approach to teaching is student-centered, interactive, humorous, with a focus of long-term growth. I want my students to feel like each lesson is engaging, different, and a new experience for them. My background as an executive manager coupled with managing and leading thousands of employees, has helped me understand where students are now and what the best approach is to lead them to their goals. 

A random fact about me is that my grandmother taught in a one room schoolhouse here in rural Maine (included in her class were her six younger brothers).  She has been my inspiration to create that type of atmosphere in my brick and mortar and online classrooms.

We'll be a great fit if you are willing to try your best, understand that mistakes are an important part of learning, and apply your learning outside of the classroom. This is our classroom and I want you to be a partner in what our lessons look and feel like!

**ALYSSA**
My name is Dr. Alyssa B. and I teach American Sign Language (ASL) beginning, intermediate, and advanced, PreK through adult levels. I have been teaching ASL for five years. I have experience teaching K-6th in a Deaf and Hard of Hearing program, as well as in a high school setting as an ASL world language teacher. I hold a B.S. in Sign Language Interpreting, an M.S. in Deaf Education, and a PhD in Organizational Leadership with a concentration in Special Education. I also hold an Education Specialist Instruction Credential and a Cross Cultural, Language, and Academic Development Certificate. 

My approach to teaching is to keep it fun! Learning a language should be done with friends and family who will offer support to one another without judgement or insecurities. I love playing games and try to utilize that format whenever it is possible. 

When I started learning ASL, I became interested in not only the language but also the culture and its people. I found myself sharing my learnings with friends and family and met what are now my very good friends in the community. My friends helped me understand the difficulties and misconceptions that surround Deaf and hard of hearing people. As a hearing person, I want to do my part by educating others about Deaf culture. 

We'll be a great fit if you are willing to play games, meet new people, and aren't afraid to practice your signing skills with others. A language is nothing without people to use it with!

A random fact about me is that I have two cats, Ollie and Ninja, and two tattoos representing them!
If supplies are needed prior to a class, the teacher will post in the classroom at least 48 hours in advance. (Examples may be: paper, crayons, toys, pictures, etc)
25 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
