Deanne teaches American Sign Language as a Special Instructor, with a passion to share American Sign Language and Deaf Culture. Her trademark is extreme energy and humor in class! Thanks to the generous assistance and support from her colleagues and the Department Chair, Deanne has developed 3rd and 4th semester ASL with the vision of creating an interdisciplinary ASL minor. With a young daughter in Elementary School, Deanne spends her free time; fostering dogs who need a forever home, playing Barbies, the game of Life and reading the the travails of Fancy Nancy.
