This session of the Beginner course will be taught by local instructor Patrice Ingle, who brings personal and professional experience. Being Deaf, Patrice uses sign language every day. Her deep personal connection to the language shapes how she teaches, with a hope to inspire that same love for visual communication in her students. Since 2018, Patrice has taught introductory ASL courses as an adjunct faculty at Delta College and Saginaw Valley State University.

This session of the Continuation course will be taught by Peter Norland. Peter is a nationally certified sign language interpreter with nine years of professional experience. He works in medical and professional settings and holds a Master's degree in interpreting theory and practice.
