Hello! I was born and raised in Rochester, New Hampshire! I spent four years in Rochester, New York, one of the largest Deaf communities in the United States. How ironic! I live in Rochester but in 2 different states! I was very fortunate to meet so many other deaf people all over the United States who taught me many different sign language regions. I have enjoyed teaching American Sign Language for the last six years. A few fun facts about myself- my black lab dog know a few signs- sit, speak, walk, and bathroom. My four- and seven-year-old children are CODA (Child of Deaf Adults), and they are bilanguage in American Sign Language and English.
I look forward to inspiring students to learn sign language and how much that would impact the deaf community.
