My name is Kelea J., and I am Deaf myself. I would like to explain briefly about my work experience. I used to work as an assistant principal/principal at the California School for the Deaf, Riverside (CSDR) for almost 9 years. Before that, I worked as an assistant principal at the Kendall Demonstration Elementary School (KDES) which is located on the Gallaudet University campus in Washington, DC. KDES was an unique experience for me because their philosophy strongly believed in having their principals and teachers develop their own K-12 curriculum instead of adopting and using general school district curriculum. And I also taught English and ESL classes in the middle school department in Maryland before starting my PhD studies in the field of administration/supervision at the Gallaudet University. During my PhD studies, I was given an opportunity to teach ESL graduate course. I was a reading specialist working with Deaf students in the lower and upper elementary departments. I also traveled more than 60 countries and always enjoy traveling. In addition, I also know Romanian Sign Language (RSL). You certainly can call me a true bilingual since I use American Sign Language (ASL) and written English. Please kindly consider me for various positions such as lesson planner, one-on-one tutor and substitute position as well. If you are interested in knowing more about me, please do let me know so we can set up an appointment where I can explain more about my work experience. I strongly believe I can be an asset to your needs. Many thanks for your time reading.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
I am Deaf myself and my first language is American Sign Language, so I do understand the process of language acquisition using their native language in order to acquire 2nd language.
I taught 3 years in middle school and upper elementary, and I really enjoyed teaching those age groups.
I obtained a CA Teaching Credential which is good until 2017, the description in the information clearly stated I am eligible Deaf/Hard of Hearing students in any settings. Plus, I am Deaf myself, too. I used to teach ELA at Maryland School for the Deaf. I also worked as an assistant principal at Kendall Demonstration Elementary School (KDES) and also was an assistant principal/principal at California School f/t Deaf (CSDR). I have been working as a substitute teacher at CSDR as well.
I am deaf myself. I have two deaf children. I taught deaf children in upper elementary. I also taught Language Arts to deaf readers in middle school. I also worked as assistant principal at California School for the deaf for 7 years. I was a reading specialist for deaf children in the lower elementary. I am studying to be a certified deaf interpreter. I also taught ASL 1 and ASL 2 last spring at the Palomar College. By now, you should see how qualified I am to teach/tutor ASL to anybody, thanks.
Vocabulary is very important especially if you want to be fluent in reading and writing. Once you understand the context clue, the sky is limit.
