will take on the natural, visual, non-spoken language with its own distinct
grammatical structure. Shape, movements, and location of the hands, facial
expressions and body will be utilized for communicating.
Instructor: Wanda Gray started her sign language
journey in 2014 when a customer who was deaf came into her office. Wanda was
frustrated with not being able to communicate with the customer, so she made
the decision to teach herself the language. She told the customer, “When you come back into
the office, I will be speaking your language. He came back the next April and
the rest is history.
Wanda continues to practice daily to help the deaf customers at City
Hall, where she currently works.
