New here but not to ASL

Recommended Posts

Hello,  

My name is Katie.  I am 33 years old and missing ASL.  I took 2 years in college and loved it.  Have have been teaching elementary school for the last 10 years and need to use ASL when I lose my voice every few months however, my friend pool of using is none existent.  I like cooking, camping, dogs and red wine.  I live and grew up in Florida and like to travel to NC and NY when I can.  I am looking for friend or more with someone who shares my ASL passion.   I try and live a christian life and I would really like to learn religious signs. I am looking to video chat at least twice a week and get to know someone, build a friends and practice sign.     

Sincerely, 

KT

    • Hey all! I took ASL for four years in high school. I got to be good friends with my teacher, who is deaf, and that gave me lots more opportunity to use ASL. Since I've gone off to college a couple years ago, we chat less and less as we get busier and I feel some frustration at having lost/forgotten some signs. I want to keep up my skills. I started an ASL club at my college with a peer who has Usher's syndrome and is part of the Deaf/blind community, but as we are teaching beginners, I'm still looking for people to sign with. I would really love to video chat. I miss this language a ton. Nice to meet you all!

    • Good evening my name is Alisha Daniels and live in the Spring Hill, Florida area. I’m a flight attendant and recently have been getting more and more hearing impaired passengers. The reason why I wanted to learn was because I felt it was so disrespectful to keep asking if they could read lips! I decided to start teaching myself then stumbled upon a class in my area. 
      I can honestly say it’s one of the best decisions I had to get my feet wet and learn! I’m nowhere near perfect, but I can at least hold a conversation AND “sign” to passengers. Whether if it’s something to eat or drink, or “signing” the safety demonstration. 
      I’m a firm believer of “if you don’t use it, you lose it” I’m hoping to find someone to practice with along this journey of mine!
