Let's start with the facts.... I teach sign language. DUH! But, what you may not know is that the average age of a student in my classes or workshops is not the typical college aged student. Nor is this student between birth to 18 years old. Nope the median age of my students is up around the 30 year old mark. HUH!?! How did that happen? Well, quite simply I have noticed a trend where many of my sign language students are parents, business owners, healthcare professionals, first responders or senior citizens. I have one class now, in which one of my students is retired from NASA and helped to create the Hubbell Telescope. (Trust me I stopped using the phrase- "This is easy, its' not ROCKET SCIENCE" during this class!)
Since today is my birthday I wanted to reiterate to those of us who are a bit "mature" that is is NEVER too late to learn ANY SKILL! Go ahead and learn to make the quilt you always wanted, dance the Zumba, learn conversational Italian and then go take that dream trip to Italy! And if you are so inclined, learn the fourth most common language used in the United States- Sign Language.
I would love to know... what is on your "must learn" list? Well, let us all know here and maybe you will help to inspire someone else.
Have a great day!
