Greetings,

Thank you for checking out the Sign Language class page. As a former missionary to the Deaf in Mexico, my heart and passion is teaching, sharing and inspiring students as second language learners to develop a love for the language, the Deaf and their Culture.

I believe American Sign Language (ASL) should be taught in a positive, fun and effective manner addressing a variety of learning styles. This will be accomplished by providing a multi-sensory environment to promote successful second language acquisition among all students, enhancing their God given talents and abilities for use to glorify Him and fulfill the “Great Commission."

Students will acquire the skills needed to converse in Sign Language by learning ASL folklore such as Number and ABC stories, ASL cultural stories, watching iDeaf news, playing familiar games in ASL, seeing movies, discovering the world of Deaf missions, finding ASL apps on the iPad, memorizing verses from the ASL Bible and visiting with the Deaf at their places of worship.

It is natural for me to cultivate a missions heart in the students. We start with prayer in ASL from day one. They soon realize that learning this language is also an opportunity to share Jesus with those who have not heard. Romans 10:14 says, "How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher?
