Nicole Harris is thrilled to introduce the American Sign Language (ASL) program to its first year at American Heritage School. Mrs. Harris recently graduated from Utah Valley University, where she received her bachelor’s degree with high honors in Deaf Studies with an emphasis in Education. During her time at Utah Valley, she immersed herself in Deaf culture to gain a better understanding of the language and community. Mrs. Harris’ student teaching was conducted at Lone Peak High School, where she instructed both beginning and intermediate levels of ASL. There she received special recognition from the ASL District Advisor for her fun and effective teaching methods and classroom management. These experiences and others have ignited her passion for teaching, to help her students continually learn and succeed. Mrs. Harris served a mission in Omaha, Nebraska where she used her ASL skills in the Winter Quarters Visitor Center. Outside of the classroom, Mrs. Harris enjoys traveling, camping, blogging, playing board games, and spending time with her husband and their cat. She is delighted to share her love of American Sign Language and her passion for the Gospel as a teacher at American Heritage School.
