Cassandra M. Ammons is a native of Atlanta, Georgia. She is the American Sign Language (ASL) Instructor and one of the Basic Computer Instructors at Clayton State University, Career and Professional Continuing Education. She graduated from Clark Atlanta University with a BA in Accounting and received her Certification in The ASL Immersion Training Program for Interpreters from Floyd College.
After working in the private and non-profit sectors as an accountant, Cassandra discovered her passion for helping others while working with children who are deaf. Later, she was able to combine her love of signing and computers as an instructor for deaf, blind, and deaf-blind adults.
Cassandra finds gratification in taking her students on a journey through any subject. Watching them grasp the information, complete the course feeling confident, and wanting to continue the learning experience. She feels that teaching is a gift that has been given to her. At the beginning of every new course she shares, "My gift is teaching. This gift isn't a gift unless I share it with you. Anything I know, I will freely gift to you!"
There are no prerequisites for this course.
