I graduated from Utah Valley University in 2014 with my degree in Deaf Studies and ASL Education. I am currently working as a Special Education Teacher in the Deaf and Hard of hearing classroom. I teach Pre-Algebra, English, and Study Skills in American Sign Language. At my last school I taught in the DHH program, and also taught ASL as a foreign language. During my years at UVU I was able to live in Ghana for a total of 5 months teaching in the Schools for the Deaf.
American Sign Language is such a beautiful and unique language. In my opinion, it is even a form of art. I assess my students through projects, presentation, and daily quizzes.

Currently working on my Masters in Deaf Education. I am teaching as an intern at a High School in their Deaf and Hard of hearing classroom.
The goal I have for my classes is to give my students the opportunity to be engaged in American Sign Language as a foreign language and the Deaf community as a culture. My ASL program will engage students who are interested in learning how to sign and will support them in acquiring and developing their ASL skills at different levels. I want my students to understand ASL as a legitimate language, and be able to communicate fully in ASL. My mission as an educator is to : Give my students the tools to become active learners, Challenge each of my students as individuals to be the best they can be, Be a role model of moral and ethical behavior, Respect each student as an individual, Create a classroom community where my students thrive.
