Submitted By Julie Rems-Smario
The California School for the Deaf (CSD) held its annual Holiday Dazzle on Dec. 16, hosted by (CSD) Superintendent, Dr. Sean Virnig. CSD students from early childhood education to high school were invited to Fair Oaks Garden (FOG) to enjoy hot chocolate, hot cider, and treats while signing winter songs in American Sign Language (ASL) with Rosa Lee Timm, a performance artist known for her YouTube ASL music videos, her one woman show called The Rosa Lee Show, and her role as the lead actress in ASL FilmsÕ feature film, Versa Effect. Currently, in addition to being the Early Childhood Education ASL teacher, she serves as the managing editor of KISSFIST magazine and an executive producer of a talk show called, Kitchen Talk.
Rosa Lee led a celebration of ASL songs through eyes, hands, motion and rhythm as elements of American Sign Language. ASL is a Òthree dimensionalÓ natural language consisting of phonology, morphology, semantics, syntax and pragmatics, just like spoken languages.
