ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR:
Hello! My name is Michael. When I was three years old, my younger brother became sick with spinal meniis. In the process, my brother became deaf with an almost complete hearing loss. This difficult situation provided a unique opportunity for my family and I to become fluent in American Sign Language (ASL). My brother was not sent away to a deaf or hard of hearing school. He grew up with us, his hearing family, and we were active in the deaf community.
As a police officer and federal investigator, I often used ASL to communicate with and interpret for witnesses, victims, and perpetrators. I decided to create ASL courses because it's a useful and practical skill to have. Like learning any language, it opens your mind and creates the ability to communicate with a whole new group of people.
