Christy Burke will be teaching a two hour American Sign Language class covering coffee shop specific terms and basic pleasantries.

This class is designed for those who work in coffee shops or restaurants but all are welcome. Come join us so we can all be better equipped to communicate with our deaf and hard of hearing customers and coworkers!
