Hello and Greetings to my students and parents,
I hope you enjoyed my welcome video and welcome again! I am so excited to have you and so ready to teach the best language in the world!!! This will be my 12th year teaching and my 2nd year at Hightower, my alma mater! I graduated from Lamar University in Beaumont, TX with a degree in American Sign Language and a minor in Education. I also received my Master's in Education Administration in 2015. I started the ASL program here at Hightower last year, and I am ready and committed to build this program to reach unimaginable heights with optimum success.
What can you expect from me and this course?
I am an upbeat person with alot of energy and always a smiling face who is happy to be at your service. We will learn ALOT and it will be a DIFFERENT experience since we won't be relying on our voice to communicate, ONLY OUR HANDS! This class can be a bit of a culture shock, but if you stick with it and work hard, you will be able to express yourself in ASL, learn about deaf people, deaf culture, and their way of life. Although this online platform will be a daunting task with alot of unknowns, we are in this together, HAND in HAND, and I will always be here for you the best way I can! Can't wait to see your faces via online or face to face, and this will most definitely be an exciting extraordinary year!
