About Malihe

I am originally from Columbus, Ohio (Go Buckeyes!!). Upon graduating from high school, I then moved to California to pursue a B.A. degree in Liberal Arts with a concentration in ASL studies from CSUN; California State University, Northridge (2008 to 2012).

After four years of undergraduate studies, I continued my education at CSUN to receive intensive training in deaf/special education for two years, 2012 to 2014, along with a full time internship at a public school under Los Angeles Unified School District, LAUSD. With the completion of a two-year teaching credential program, I was still hungry for more educational training in deaf education.

Moving from California to Washington DC, I attended Gallaudet University to pursue a M.A. degree in Deaf Education, which was a one-year program, from 2014 to 2015. Within this program, I have received advanced studies in deaf education, which consists of bilingual methods, working with families, deaf culture studies, critical pedagogy, and assessment methods. I also had an opportunity to complete a thesis project on the impact of self-esteem, identity development, and school achievements on deaf immigrated high school students.

I am Deaf, and fluent in ASL. I have taken classes on ASL, and I interact with people who use ASL on a daily basis.

I also have been a private tutor for a family that has a deaf child for two summers in a row, 2015 and 2016, in Fredericksburg, Virginia where I taught the family sign language, and taught them to set up a deaf-friendly environment for their deaf child.
