Passions and Anxieties


I am passionate about providing opportunities for all children to be successful, and after working with Deaf children for many years, I am convinced that all Deaf children should be given the opportunity to learn American Sign Language. While many options exist for facilitating speech and encouraging assimilation into the dominant culture, I believe that ASL should always be a part of Deaf children’s lives. As an educator working with families who have children who are Deaf, I hope to encourage ASL and support families in their choices.
