Hello! My name is Shanna. I am a Smith College graduate with a degree in Education and a concentration in theatre. I have a teaching certification from the state of Texas in American Sign Language. I just finished with teaching ASL to high school students in Austin, TX. I am Deaf myself, and have experience working with all kinds of children and adults. I can work with both hearing and Deaf populations, and I have experience with tutoring Deaf children English and math. I also used to teach adults ages 16-70 in New Orleans helping them to prepare for their GEDs. Additionally, I have taught theatre and environmental science. I look forward to meeting you!
I am Deaf myself, and have a degree in Education. I know American Sign Language fluently, as well as Cued Speech. I have tutored Deaf children before, and I know what the experience of being a Deaf child is like from personal experience.
Basically, I absolutely love literature, and am a huge Shakespeare fan. Some of my favorite authors include Poe, Whitman, Dickinson, Orwell, and Vonnegut. As a theatre major, I was required to analyze scripts and major works. I still remember many literary terms from back in the day!
I have taught American Sign Language at a high school in Austin, TX. I also have just passed the Texas ASL Performance exam and the ASL teaching exam. I am probationary certified in the state of TX at the moment. I am Deaf and fluent, and have tutored many students for over 6 years.
I am currently an actress with a professional company here in Los Angeles. In college, my concentration was theatre. I have experience in all aspects of theatre, and have taught it in school before. I have taught acting, directing, playwriting, and more.
