About John

I have been interested in sign language ever since I was in college. I attended California State University, Northridge, learning not only about sign language but also deaf history and culture. I pursued a degree to become a teacher, getting my Master's in Deaf Education from Hunter College. For the past ten years, I have been working as a teacher for the deaf in Connecticut, Vermont and New York. This has included teaching sign language in the home and in the classroom for both adults and children.

My goal for teaching sign langauge is to make learning sign language fun. Sign language is a wonderfully visual and expressive language. It uses not only the hands but also the face and body to show emotions and context. I love teaching sign language and would like to to bring my enthusiasm and experience and love of this beautiful langauge to you.
