On Being at SVC

I am excited to join this unique, tight-knit community of learners. American Sign Language is the fourth most common language in the United States but yet is not offered as a language in most high schools and colleges across the nation. I am dedicated to educate the SVC community on the benefits and uses of American Sign Language and Deaf culture. I am also a dedicated teacher of the deaf and special educator to Bennington County Community.
