What is the best part about teaching?
The best part is that I get to interpret and it’s something I love to do. I love learning new signs and I love learning how the students sign at home. It’s an ongoing learning process.
What is the best advice you’ve been given about teaching?
Someone once told me to embrace everyone and no matter what to encourage that they are doing their best. I can meet them where they are and we go from there.
