Hello! I'm thrilled to be entering my 18th year of teaching, and I'm excited to be a part of this incredible team at Westlake High School! I have a Bachelor of Science in Business Management at Gallaudet University (1993) and a Master of Science in Deaf Education from McDaniel College (1997). Since 1998, I have been teaching at Texas School for the Deaf ranging from Preschool to Transitional Program. In addition, I have taught American Sign Language in secondary schools and private organizations.
American Sign Language is my primary language as I came from a large deaf family (parents, brothers, aunt, cousins, nephews, and nieces) and ASL was the primary communication mode at home. I grew up in the small town of Woodbridge, Connecticut and have lived in Austin since 1994. I have three teenagers, Niko (23), Trei (17) and Jolé (16). Both Niko and Trei are deaf and are the proud members of the 3rd Deaf generation in our family tree. We have three dogs Bella, Zoe, and Abby.
I am excited to teach American Sign Language to your son or daughter, and share with them its rich history and culture!
