I have been involved in the Deaf community for over 20 years. As the mother of Deaf twins, I am a firm believer that ASL makes the world a better place. It is an important language that helps bridge the gap between the Deaf Community and the hearing community. You may be wondering why I capitalize “Deaf Community” and not “hearing community”. That is because the Deaf Community is actually a cultural group, which your child will learn about in ASL class. ASL is such an important language to me and is part of my home life, professional life, and even my ministry as the Deaf Ministry pastor at my church, Southside church. I am thankful for the calling to share life & Jesus with this special  group of people and I look forward to sharing their language with your children as well. I offer a middle school classes 6-8th grade & Middle School/High School ASL 1, 2, & 3.
