Course Descriptions

Foreign Languages

American Sign Language Littles: (lower elementary) Ms. Everett and her daughter, PinkiePie, teach simple ASL vocabulary with songs, stories, and rhymes. Topics include colors, animals, feelings, foods, and school items. This is a vocabulary building course and doesn’t focus on the grammar and culture of the language. Ms. Everett includes a picture-in-picture ASL interpretation in each lesson which allows access to videos for Deaf individuals and extra receptive practice for students with more fluency.
August 2019 – TBD

About the teacher: Ms. Everett is a homeschool graduate, a homeschooling mother of 2, and a certified teacher in Florida. She has a Masters Degree in Special Education: Disability Services and studied Deaf Education. She works as a video relay interpreter and a community interpreter. Ms. Everett describes herself as someone who has anxiety and is a little different than your average person with her doctor saying she probably has what used to be called Asperger’s Syndrome but is now part of the Autism Spectrum.


American Sign Language (ASL): (all ages) Ms. Everett introduces conversational American Sign Language and Deaf culture. This study will include grammar, vocabulary, cultural norms, and some technology. Ms. Everett utilizes PowerPoint slides during class and brings her own children onscreen to help her demonstrate signs and expressions. Most lessons will come from Lifeprint.com and students are encouraged to watch Hoeden ASL lessons and the matching videos of Dr. Bill teaching too. He’s a Deaf college professor who has been gracious enough to let us use his materials in this course and seeing multiple signers will help comprehension in real life.

Spanish Conversations: Mrs. JM teaches Spanish on a conversational level. During each lesson, she presents a handful of words and then uses them in basic sentences. This approach opens the door to sentence structure without slowing down the growth of Spanish vocabulary. Mrs. JM uses a chalkboard and breaks words down into their individual sounds to help students learn both proper pronunciation and spelling. Students love seeing what unique pointer Mrs. JM has chosen for each lesson (Harry Potter wand, Mickey Mouse glove, whisk, etc)!
Jan 2019 – TBD
