Hello There!

I am a Deaf ASL instructor, and I've been teaching since 2015. I've enjoying to see my students develop a sense of ASL, which is a beautiful and visual language to learn.

Once you take a few ASL classes, you will build your signs skills to able to converse with Deaf people and learn about Deaf Culture.

I've been teaching American Sign Language for 5 years, and signing myself for 18 years, and my students have gone on to develop a love for ASL, Deaf people, and Deaf culture. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to carry on a simple conversation in the language, and as time goes on you'll be able to feel totally at ease with Deaf people. I have great online tools you can use for free to practice between lessons, and I'm flexible with any other resources we use. I can't wait to meet you!

I received my BA in Music with a certification to teach at Lubbock Christian University in 1998. Later I attended the Interpreter Certification program at Burl

Our daughter absolutely loved Carla! She was encouraging, an excellent teacher, fun, positive and more! She matched our daughter's pace. She learned so much from her and though our daughter discontinued learning ASL because she began college, she hopes to connect with Carla again someday to continue learning ASL. What a great experience! Thank you Carla!
Pamela W.
Carla took the time to call me when I registered to talk about what I was looking for in the lesson. She came prepared to the lesson and is very knowledgeable. She made it comfortable and easy to learn!

What is Black ASL?

Most people living in the United States are likely familiar with American Sign Language (ASL); even if they don’t know any signs, they know it exists.
