Dan Mathis, ASL Faculty

With the arrival of Dan Mathis, there are three full-time ASL faculty at UW. 

For the first time at UW, seven sections of ASL 101 will be taught in Autumn 2020.  Dan will join existing faculty Lance Forshay and Kristi Winter in teaching a variety of first and second year ASL classes.  In addition to ASL, the department also offers Introduction to American Deaf Culture (ASL 305), taught every Spring by Forshay.

Forshay reports that “Dan has been meeting with the ASL teachers every week throughout the summer to get to know our ASL team. He has contributed a lot already with his expertise in ASL teaching. We are looking for great things coming from Dan for our department.”
