I don't want to lose my skills!

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone! I'm a former Teacher of the Deaf from SC. I moved to NC in January and took a new job as a special education teacher. I only had one student I could sign with this past year, and I really don't want to lose all the skills I had from before. I would be willing to chat with anyone. I'm no expert, but any practice is good practice! 😁

I recently retired from teaching braille.  Am taking an ASL class and enjoying it.  Just need more opportunities to practice.  Looking forward to checking out this site and finding ways to practice.  So far enjoying the fingerspelling game.  I am amazed that it is possible to read 30 words or more in such a short period of time from seeing all the names on the leaderboard!  I am at 16!  I have a long way to go!  

Unlike braille, where reading braille is far easier than writing braille, it seems with ASL it is easier to sign or finger spell to someone than it is to interpret what they are signing or fingerspelling to you.  It will be refreshing to be on the other side of the teaching/learning relationship!

    • Are you willing to chat/sign with someone who is pretty rusty at their signing. I would be honored to get to know you better. Either reply or email me [email protected] Thank You! John

    • Hello, I am John from Milwaukee, WI CST looking for a signing partner. I went through the 1st year of ITP Interpreter Technician Program at my community college and had to drop out due to learning disability, I love to sign however I can't interpret. I'm 45-year-old male married 1 year, I was in college when I was 20 so a few years ago. I think I might feel more comfortable with a female signer. Please send me an email. Thank You!
