Over 20 years experience teaching ASL to High School and College students.
Connect and interact with students using the target language. I incorporate a variety of styles into my teaching such as: authority, demonstration, facilitator, delegator, and a bit of hybrid.
11 awards in teaching including PTK Golden Apple Award (2017), teacher of the year candidate (2014), and Teacher of the Year 9-12 from the VFW (2005-2006).

I have a deep passion for teaching and love every minute I'm with my students. Their passion to learn inspires me to keep learning from others to bring the best back into my classroom.
