“Learning is finding out what we already know. Doing is demonstrating that you know it. Teaching is reminding others that they know just as well as you. You are all learners, doers, and teachers.” — Richard Bach

 

 

 

Being a Sign Language teacher is great, loads of fun and allows creativity for teaching an exciting language! As an educator I am always looking for ways to increase class interest, to find a more effective and clear way to present content for students to learn ASL (while meeting standards) and to maintain/update my knowledge. The best way to meet these goals is to connect with other teachers and professionals, attend workshops/trainings, read related materials and take what I have learned and apply.The goal for a portion of this blog is to assist teachers in connecting with each other, sharing lessons and related information that can be applied in your environment, and bouncing around ideas with others because sometimes the teaching setting can be isolated.

We strive to be the best ASL teachers additional support is always great where we can find it. Let’s reach out and connect and continue to make a difference in ASL and our students lives.
