My Students

The students at our school come from multicultural, multilingual, and multi-socioeconomic backgrounds. Our classrooms range from ones that have advanced students, second language learners, struggling students, students with special needs, and everything in between. Our diversity is what makes our school as unique as the world language we offer for foreign language credit: American Sign Language (ASL). Our school is the only one in our district that offers ASL, and the only one within 30 miles of any other district.

My Project

We are the only American Sign Language (ASL) program in our district, and the only ASL IV Honors class in the county. These students are the first to graduate from the new ASL IV Honors class, and have a chance to apply for their seal of biliteracy. Every year, the seniors in the ASL program receive small graduation gifts, and we are hoping to continue this tradition now that we have a four year program. Many of these students will take these skills and put them towards a career in Deaf Studies or Interpreting, and all will inevitably become advocates for the Deaf community.
