Thank for giving me the opportunity to teach American Sign Language here at Vista Ridge and I hope that you get an opportunity to expereicne a new culture and people. I have lived in Colorado for six years and this is my third year teaching at Vista Ridge. I am orginally from Texas and while I miss it often, I love the family and relationships I have build here.
