I’m on my way to Tacoma, Washington to teach PST361: A Brief Introduction to the Structure of ASL, which is a course offered under our off-campus extension program.
There are sixteen students registered. Looking forward to another fun course with the students in Washington State. (I taught the first of our series of PST courses there back in February.)Thanks to Pam Snedigar of the Gallaudet University Regional Center-West for sponsoring the series of courses in Washington State. And special thanks to Paul Bert for coordinating all of the logistics on site!My visit happens to coincide with the 5th Fall Northwest Regional ASL Teachers Conference, sponsored by WA ASLTA (http://bit.ly/PrZvMT), so I’ll also be taking advantage of that opportunity to meet even more Washington State deaf community members. I’m planning to attend presentations by both Larry Petesen, long time Deaf Community Leader from Seattle, and Ryan Commerson, social justice activist and filmmaker, as well as a performance by Nat Wilson, a local ASL instructor and actor.
It promises to be a fun-filled and productive weekend of meeting new people and making deeper connections!
