I have taught British Sign Language for 11
Years 7 of those years here at York St John University.
As a Senior Lecturer at York St John I teach
on all BSL modules, facilitating students from those who have never
signed a word to being fluent in BSL; not just as a language but as
a culture. In 2011 I was awarded National Teacher of the Year
by Signature and York Adult Tutor of the Year by City of York
Council’s “York 800” in 2012.
I engage in teaching staff basic and advanced
d/Deaf awareness at the University and for other companies and
business around the area. Helping to encourage openness and equal
access for d/Deaf people in the community and work place.
I support the Sign Language Society getting
BSL out of the classroom and developing confidence and inspiring
wider involvement of BSL around the University.
I have taught BSL in many schools and
organisations in my time as a teacher and lead a small team
of BSL lecturers here at York St John to further develop on our
growing student numbers in the subject, hopefully we will repeat
2011’s performance of an excellent 100% pass rate.
