Operating as usual


Hello, guys! Most of you may not know that I had ended up at Sam Houston State University as a full-time faculty member of the ASL program that soon will be grown into a major program within the Houston area. That won't mean I forget you guys! I remember you everyday with fondness. However I need to ask you if we all want to keep this Kingwood group...meaning that we all try and schedule ASL events within the Kingwood area or change it to something like SHSU-Kingwood ASL ? Let me know your opinion! Hope to hear from you guys!


Notice: The ASL Club is being moved to Mondays (same time, same place) in order to accommodate a lot of students with their schedules and new jobs. And once again the club is under the "old management" :-)

How do the college rush go? Any luck in getting more members?


By the way...did we hold a booth at Back to the Woods fest last Thursday? Anyone?


On ASL Club front: Deborah Moore and I will share the ASL Club sponsoring responsibilities. She is really GREAT when it comes to working with the club. You won't see the end of me...not this time. Hard to get rid of me. :-)


GOOD NEWS: ASL 3 is in session. The Powers That Be at Kingwood decided to keep the class even if the number is low (at the time of writing...twelve students had signed up.) And Robyn Brittain is being asked to teach. GOOD LUCK TO ALL OF YOU! Remember you can see me on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays (socials) or Saturdays, and here on Facebook! Or by appointment!


TREMENDOUS NEWS: I just got hired to teach at Sam Houston State University in Huntsville, Texas. In addition to being a vice president for the local chapter of American Sign Language Teachers Association, being recently placed as the chairperson of the multi-collegiate ASL curriculum (last Friday), and now handling two programs all at once. My plate is more than full. HA HA

So a lot of things will change for all of us. That means possible resources from the university for the Kingwood program and all that. Plus you guys might get to mingle with my students from the university at the Kingwood socials. By the way...I have to work at SHSU on Tuesdays and Thursdays.....would anyone mind if we move our beloved ASL club to either on Mondays or Wednesdays? Because those are the days I am at Kingwood.

Switched at Birth

For those of you that really like to watch Switched at Birth and or miss the first show....the first episode is available at HULU!

Switched at Birth Sixteen years ago, one mistake changed two families forever when two newborns were switched at birth. Bay grew up in a wealthy family while Daphne, who lost her hearing as a child, was raised by a single mom in a working class neighborhood.

Deaf Not Dumb

Just saw this...and thought you would like to see this....produced by the deaf from the Middle East/Sub-Saharan culture using British Sign Language. But you can get the idea from the video!

Deaf Not Dumb Offscreen, Adobe Youth Voices and Deaffinity have made this powerful social exposé of what is it (and isn't) to be deaf in today's world.

Happy New Year!


I am hearing from a couple of students...that they feel that they might be losing their ASL skills over the LONG break and are itching to sign again. So an idea is being cooked do you guys feel about meeting for lunch or dinner sometime before the school begins on Jan 17th? Say...Friday, January the 13th? At RC PIZZA?

Merry Christmas to all of you, my ASL fellows!! You guys are giving me two great years as your teacher. I appreciate your time with me and here is the hope for more! See you all soon!!


The grades are posted. A LOT of you did great! I hope you have a great learning experience in the classes and that you benefit from them by applying it to your way of think of things visually...a new way to solve problems. Like English, ASL is a form of art...a true language that do affect one to think differently and apply it to various aspects of your life. It is much more than just learning the vocabulary and the structure of the is a way of being more expressive in oneself and to others. On a note: I wish you the best in your endeavors...whether if it is to enlist in the army, perform the missionary work, obtain new jobs, and to enroll in four year universities . For others...I hope to see you in ASL 2/3 and in ASL CLUB!!!

Sign Language Interpreters – Complicit in a Devil’s Bargain? 12/15/2011

Sign Language Interpreters – Complicit in a Devil’s Bargain?

Hello!!! I am STILL WORKING on grading your course workload! I just want to share an article for those of you that consider the interpreting field. I highly recommend that you read this as seeing that the interpreters are asking questions on how to "reconnect" with the deaf community after years of change in laws, money, and aspects relating to interpreting.

I learned this spell from Harry Potter...he just stopped by and showed me this cool spell. It worked for him but lets see if it works for me...

Come...all my beloved students....pull up your hands as I wave my wand and say this in an ancient tongue.

Here it comes: "Manibus Dicatum! Manibus Dicatum! Manibus Dicatum!"

Now...can any of you talk in American Sign Language? Oh really!!! Most of you could?? YAH! YAH!

Oh wait a minute....most of you took my classes this past semester, I forgot. Oh never way of knowing that this spell works. :-)

My beloved HTC EVO phone got STOLEN! (A case of Deaf-to-Deaf crime)

Today I volunteered to teach at Career and Recovery, INC...that nonprofit agency downtown (Houston). Today was my first day...and after two hours of explaining the judicial system using the terms they are HTC EVO performed its disappearing act while I was being introduced to a client in the supervisor's office using the videophone.

After noticing that my smartphone is missing...I went to the computer to log on in my LOOKOUT use the GPS system. I am so technologically-savvy enough to employ the GPS technology to track down my phone. Sure enough the phone is located 9.3 miles away from where I am after remotely turning on the GPS. And it kept moving. I tracked the unidentified thief for about 20 or so more miles including his several stops which is apparently the attempt to sell my phone or to conduct drug deals. After all..these places are unsafe!

While I track, I have Career and Recovery, Inc staff to work through the addresses of the clients to figure out who took the phone, taking that route, and all that. BOOM...the suspect is possibly identified.

Of course I had Houston Police stop by. (Why are my encounters with the Houston Police increasing???? :-/...) I made out a report with them but they said my phone is not one of their priorities. Even if I managed to track down my phone within two miles of the possible thief's house....which is not a coincidence since its in the general area of his home and that he already have a criminal record. I am even told that I have to call Sprint to deactivate my phone and make an insurance claim to get a new phone.

I am not sure what Career and Recovery, Inc would do but I was told that they will confront him and probably kick him out of the program. I would press charges against him so the jail is probably waiting for him since he has felonies.

I was also told that I will get my new phone tomorrow. (fast overnight shipping) but that I have to pay $100 deductible. HELL YA, I will make that guy pay through the nose. I would look into either securing a firing squad, invoking the Sharia Code to sever his hand, and/or a public hanging. I know it is highly unlikely for these to happen but I can only dream.

Good thing that I had my phone locked when it was cannot be used to make calls, surf web, and all that. So for these that probably tried to text, email, call, and twitter me....I apologize if I don't reply back! I am sure by now that you would accept this logical explanation that I would not get back to you all afternoon and tonight.
