Hello! Welcome to Creative ASL Teaching. I have been a Secondary American Sign Language teacher for 18 years. Prior to that, I taught elementary school, mainly Kinder and third grade. I live in southern California with my husband (also a teacher), our two children and our two Puggles. I have a passion for ASL and feel everyone should learn to communicate with others.
The thought of starting this blog has been with me for quite some time. The idea came to me because of the frustration I have experienced with the lack of resources, materials, and training available to American Sign Language teachers. It is my hope that I can help other teachers by sharing my journey in education, my failures in teaching and my passion for ASL and Deaf culture.
I hope you can find inspiration, creativity, and fresh ideas as you read this blog.
