Portia learned to sign before she learned to speak. At the age of 5, she joined her first signing choir and quickly progressed to the most advanced level. At age 8, she started teaching an award-winnning Signed Story-time at the Layton Library. It was so popular that it continued for three years (until she moved from the area.) She was teaching signing choirs and sign language classes at age 10. At age 12, she was accepted into the American Sign Language Interpreting Program at SLCC (the only college in the state that had an interpreting program at the time.) She started teaching sign language classes for the City of South Jordan at age 15, and started teaching classes for Salt Lake County at age 16. She would love to help you learn and master American Sign Language.
