Patricia Mades – Bio
I began learning American Sign Language (ASL) over 30 years ago, and I haven’t stopped since! I used to teach Deaf students at a school for the Deaf and I also taught ASL to hearing students in a public school district for 20 years. I am still working as a certified ASL interpreter part time, going on my 30th year! I enjoy teaching others to see the beauty and usefulness of this unique language, which has been so generously shared with me by so many in the Deaf community.
