Dreamweaver

I have over 7 years of education, training, and working experiences such as such having specialized in Dreamweaver and will explain this. During my Design for Web I and II class at Northern Virginia Community College, the instructor taught me how to develop web page design by HTML editing tool/WYSIWYG software called Dreamweaver. Dreamweaver have attributes and exercise web design tools such as for Web page content, I used a storyboard to put notes and design then use mock-ups in Photoshop can be used in the Dreamweaver. For image optimization, for home page and image alters such as I used designed with Adobe Photoshop, Image Ready, Illustrator, Firework, and Flash and slice images to put link to then go to file menu and click on optimize for web means to save in web format from .PSD to .Html. Adobe Photoshop is utilized images to alter such as cut, crop, copy, and mask, change colors, and add layers for creativity. Illustrator is good with vector such as create logos and fonts. For Adobe Image Ready, it switches from Photoshop and creates such as animations from the layers. For all companies that I worked with, I used mostly is format .doc to .html such as Microsoft Word and FrontPage have converted from .doc to html. Microsoft word .doc can save as webpage same for excel files .xls to .html. Also, I use a scanner such as HP Officejet which I scanned photos and documents and select which menu options available such as .pdf, doc, email and image. For web management, I had learned from my Design for Web I and II class, I was developed Dreamweaver's file transfer protocol (FTP) configuration and settings from local to remote (Root) which transfer files to remote. Also, I researched to find web hosting company to use for web space. For example, for web page organization, I worked as a Web Design Intern with M.L. Freeman Consulting Inc., ProjWord, Higher Horizons Day Care Center, and Chamberlin-Washington, Inc; I completed web tasks by published web pages through Dreamweaver and FrontPage.

When I was 2 or 3 years old, I learned sign language. I became a sign language expert. Also, I have great personality traits and talents that I want to contribute to people. When my audiologist and doctor found out that I was deaf, our dearest family friend introduced my parents to the Laurent Clerc Center (formerly Kendall Demonstration Elementary School, KDES), located on the Kendall Green Campus (Gallaudet University). I graduated KDES, MSSD (Model Secondary School for the Deaf), and Gallaudet University. I have a lot of experiences in teaching and using Sign Language. For example, as Parent Infant Program teacher aide, I taught sign language to toddlers. As a Peer Adviser and Librarian Aide in MSSD, I used sign language to communicate with the teenagers, peers, visitors, and colleagues.
