Growing up with a deaf sister, Sandra began using sign language at a young
age. Her first introduction to the benefits of baby sign was when she was
10 years old and her youngest sister was born. Later while studying Early
Childhood Education, Sandra studied the benefits of sign language from an
educators perspective and her interest continued to grow. Once she began
working with infants and using baby sign language with them, she saw how
wonderful it is for babies to be able to communicate at such a young age.
Sandra is a full time Mommy to 3 children. Sign language continues to be
an important part of their lives!
Sandra currently holds an Early Childhood Education diploma, including a
certificate in Infant and Toddler Education. She has 6 years experience
working as an Early Childhood Educator with children ranging in ages from
9 months to 5 years old. Sandra enjoys working with young children and
especially loves watching them learn and have fun! She is very excited to
offer My Smart Hands baby sign language classes to families in Kelowna and
the Okanagan Valley. She is confident that you will find her classes fun,
interactive and a great way to meet other parents!
