You asked for it…
For years, Signing Time fans have asked to attend or teach classes with a Signing Time-based curriculum. We are pleased to announce that the official launch of the Signing Time Academy is just around the corner!
The Signing Time Academy will certify instructors to teach Signing Time and Baby Signing Time Classes in their communities. You can become an instructor or enjoy attending classes with other parents and children.
If you have a love for Signing Time products, a desire for all parents to benefit from Signing Time, AND you want to run your own business–get on board NOW to become one of the very first Certified Instructors. Instructors will have access to curriculums, products, discounts, tools and support for ongoing success. Instructors will have the opportunity to give valuable feedback in this initial launch and shape the future of the Academy.
If you are interested in either taking a class or becoming certified to teach classes, please sign up to receive Signing Time Academy news at www.signingtime.com/classes.
That’s all we can say for now, but more details will be coming soon.
Since the beginning, Signing Time fans have taken it upon themselves to be our partners in sharing sign language with others. Now, with the Signing Time Academy, we can make that partnership official. Join us and invite your community to “Come sign with us!”
About the Director
We are especially excited to introduce to you the newest member of our team, Gwen Cox. As an interpreter for the Deaf for 22 years, Gwen has worked in a variety of educational venues and is fluent in American Sign Language. She spent nine years teaching sign language workshops and classes to thousands of hearing families and individuals all over the USA through her company, My Baby Signs, LLC. Gwen is also the former director of a large network of baby sign language instructors, bringing over four years experience teaching other teachers. Gwen is the mother of two grown boys. She has been using and recommending Signing Time products since the very first volume came out on VHS in 2002. She is thrilled to join the Signing Time team, and we are equally grateful to have her passion, vision, and leadership to further the Signing Time mission.
