My Age Range:
My race and ethnicity:
I graduated from Iowa School for the Deaf and Gallaudet University. I worked at Nebraska School for the Deaf then at Iowa School for the Deaf. But found my greatest passion teaching ASL to families and Deaf foreigners. I teach ASl at our local College.
About My Family:
My parents and siblings are all Hearing none of them sign. Communcating with the family to this day is still a struggle.
My children are all hearing as well, but they all know how sign, thus my relationship with my children is so awesome.
I'm here because...
Family is precious.I don't wish for any individual to feel distance from their family. Finding the right method of comunicating is important in bonding well with the family.
