I'm grateful to all of the many people who have been supportive of my work and efforts.
Looking back, "online learning of American Sign Language" seems like an OBVIOUS thing to do.
Would you believe that in the early days I received quite a bit of criticism for teaching ASL online?
On the other hand, (wink) there were those who were open minded and said "go for it."  Thank you.
