Nicholas Lalanne attended Gallaudet University and received his Bachelors of Science degree in Computer Information Systems. After that, he worked at colleges teaching American Sign Language and Deaf Studies. Here his passion for teaching began to blossom. He then studied a Master’s in Sign Language Education (MASLED) at Gallaudet University. During his graduate studies, Lalanne took courses such as Linguistics, Theories of Languages, and Teaching Methods.
For Lalanne, his ASL students are like seeds planted in a garden. He nurtures them as they learn the language; water and sun are provided. As he teaches and students learn, they grow from tiny seeds and become beautiful flowers. They comprehend the language. That is what he enjoys.
