Charlene C. Slaats-Gray – President

Charlene is a Certified Independent Sign Language Instructor who has multiple degrees and certificates in American Sign Language (ASL)  

Charlene works in an industry that services the culturally Deaf, oral deaf, deafened and hard of hearing community. Her experience working with children with diverse levels of hearing loss comes from her volunteer work at Robarts School for the Deaf. Seeing many deaf children who have hearing parents, she noticed the need, and desire, for hearing parents to bridge the communication gap between themselves and their child.

What began as an interest in American Sign Language quickly turned into a passion for Charlene. That passion led her to My Smart Hands where she will be able to further share her expertise with others.
