Branching Out

This week I changed up the game. I actually left my little bubble of learning ASL by myself and found another classmate who was also learning ASL. After I built up the nerve to ask, Regan Luypaert came on board and helped me create a conversation in ASL.

This was a huge step for me because I had yet to communicate with someone who was on a similar learning experience as me. We created a script and practiced all week. Eventually, the video was made.

I used a plethora of websites in order to learn the script including:


Sign School

Spread the Sign


Sign Savy

I am finding that creating sentences is easier as my vocabulary continues to grow. Special thanks to Regan for doing this video with me. I couldn’t have connected with someone learning sign language if it wasn’t for her.

I have known I wanted to be a teacher my entire life. I never had a doubt in my mind of what I wanted to be in this world. Even though I was certain of the end goal, I never stopped to wonder what the journey to get to that point would look like. This blog is it. This blog is the messy middle where I transition from student to teacher. Every thought and belief I have and learn throughout my education is posted to this blog in order to document my journey in becoming a teacher. I invite you all to join me as I strive to become more than just a teacher, but also a kind and inclusive citizen.
