Often as an educator, blogger and human being. I begin to rant about all the information in my head. Not a one moment do I think stop and ask if the person listening or sharing in the conversation have a question or insight to share. I know quite often I learn best through discussions and interactions with others. Therefore, what questions do you have about the Deaf community, Deaf culture and/or American Sign Language? Or what insight do you have and would like to share with readers to help us gain a better understanding pertaining to these subjects. I would love to hear from you.

Blessings, Love and Light,

My wonderful students have been practicing and planning an ASL Showcase. Students will perform acts, skits and songs that are translated into Sign Language. You do not need to be fluent in ASL to enjoy the show, only have a willingness to have fun and experience something new.

The event will take place at:

Redlands High School

As a teacher every now and then we may teach topics we may not know the technical term for but we now what we are teaching and how to teach it. Sometimes, I will teach a topic and someone will ask if I teach a certain topic or make a comment on the topic I teach and when they use the technical term..I think oh yes that is what is called. My motto is I am always learning and I seek to learn something new as often as possible therefore I am in a constant learning process. What I think I know…. I don’t and what I think I don’t know…I do, odd how that works. However, I know that I know I want to always put my best effort forth and when I am not familiar with a topic I am going to research or ask for help until I get an  answer I understand. Therefore, I was introduced to these four topics some of the topic I knew already and the others I did some research to make sure I understood and now I want other educators, native signers or those knowledgable about linguistics to shed some light. If you could give definitions and examples of how you use this in content, that would be great!

These are 4 topics : Classifiers; Discourse Analysis; Register and ASL Sentence Types. 

Thankyou for your help and feedback!
