de Julia was my ASL teacher from 1999/2003. She was the most difficult teacher I have ever encountered, but her hard works and determination paid off. 11 years later I'm still using the language she taught a young 14 year old. I don't know a single teacher who goes above a beyond like she does. Most times she places her students before her own family. She's strict, no nonsense kind of woman. She will push you only to better you.

her class is difficult, but if you really pay attention you will get it. You actually have to focus in her class. You don't get that much homework, but you do a lot of classwork and you do get projects. If you have any questions, you need to go ask her asap, because if you wait she will rip your head off. She can be really nice, but if you are on her bad side she is really rude. don't go there. her class is really fun/funny though (:

if you want a class that all you will learn is how cruel hearing people are, de julia is the perfect teacher for it. ADVICE- if you wanna take ASL, take it at a community college.
