Sign Language Club

Shaffer’s American Sign Language Club
My name is Kristi Myers; I am a State Certified Educational Sign Language Interpreter and have a degree in Sign Language Interpreting.  I have been signing since I was 8 years old.  I have worked in education for 17 years and sign language is a passion of mine!  I am hard of hearing myself.
I have worked very hard with Mr. Brasher in bring this Sign Language Class/Club to Shaffer Elementary to help expose students to a new language, culture and way of looking at the world.  We are one of the only schools in the district to offer this class.  This is an amazing opportunity to learn a hands-on language that engages both sides of the brain and is also visual!  It is fun and entertaining all at the same time.  There is no better time to start learning the language than now!
Some of the things we will cover: the alphabet, numbers, school signs, general/conversational signs and more.  We will play games and have tons of fun!  We will also discuss the language and talk about deafness, so students understand why this language is so beautiful and why we have it!
Classes cost: $60 per student
ALL CLASSES ARE 6 WEEKS LONG
Times: 8:10am- 8:50am (will release them to class)
