Passionate ASL Learner Turns to Teaching
#22896 Erin Long has decided to turn to teaching during her stay-at-home experience. A passionate ASL learner, Erin had been leading a monthly ASL class at her local library. When everything started to shift online, Erin followed suit!
Her website states, “Erin Long has been studying ASL for 4 years now. After watching her own mother struggle to connect in an audio-centric world, she knows first-hand the value of visual communication. She developed a passion for ASL, and now she wants to take what she knows and educate the rest of the hearing world about ASL and communicating across language and ability barriers.”
I recently took my first class with Erin and I was so impressed with her confidence as a teacher! She delivered a spectacular curriculum to about a dozen people and I am now feeling good about using the alphabet, numbers, and a few phrases. And, she was right, my hands were tired at the end of the class!
