Hello, my name is Ariel and I am excited to be ASL teacher. I am immersed in the ASL language everyday as an Interpreter which has allowed me to become fluent. With experience in medical, educational, and teaching settings, I have learned the best and most effective ways to learn this language.

American Sign Language, or ASL, is recognized as an official language for Deaf communities in much of North America. Using expressions, gestures, and hand and body movements, the language helps those who are deaf or hard of hearing to communicate. The American School for the Deaf contributed to the development of the language in the early 1800s in New England. From there, it spread to other schools. Today, people study and learn ASL all across the United States and in some areas of Canada.
