John first began his work with sign language twenty-two years ago in an interpreter-training program, but after working in the mainstream classroom setting, he quickly realized his passion was in education. He went on to teach deaf and hard of hearing children in the public school setting and became a leader for incorporating sign language communication between the home and school settings and involving parents into the educational equation.
