I have American Sign Language (ASL) skills. Experienced in interpreting for three years now.

This 4th grader is very driven to achieve. He really wants to do his very best in his... read more

In my childhood experience, I was fluent in sign language and I observed that hearing children seemed to be motivated to communicate with me. I got the opportunity to teach them basic ABC fingerspelling first with creative ways like using lipreading with no voice to using lip moving with letter A then following the ABC order and pointing to each category in daily life such as family name.

I have been referred many students with issues or problems that a colleague could not handle for some reason. Probably my biggest challenge in this regard was a most recent one, a delightful student who was partially deaf. Antoine had problems I had... read more
