About Suzie

I am an American Sign Language Instructor and have been teaching ASL as a foreign language to university level students since 1991. I have taught at many school settings during my teaching career to deaf and hearing children and adults. I am ASLTA Certified and also hold SLPI- ASL – Superior Plus certificate.

Growing up deaf, after spending 11 years at a private deaf school learning how to talk and lip read, I attended a hearing high school for four years. I learned ASL when I was a teenager. Today, I communicate with a combination of speech reading and ASL. I’m a very animated person when I communicate using speech, ASL and expressions so hearing people can understand me easily.

As an ASL Teachers Association Certified Instructor (ASLTA) , I give classes on American Sign Language and Deaf Culture to interested adults who work with special needs, deaf and hearing children and students. I also offer trainings to professionals who work with Deaf Children and Deaf Adults.
