Personal Message to Students

Sometimes the best way to learn a language that is not your primary used, is learning to embrace the history, culture and it's community. ASL may be a language but the Deaf/HOH Community is a very powerful and expressive Community. What a better way to learn ASL from a teacher who is HOH herself and welcomes you into her language and community!
