Sign Language

Michele Bornert

Hi! My name is Michele Bornert and I teach American Sign Language. I was born deaf on one side and became fully deaf later in life. I use ASL as my primary means of communication. In 2004 I started my company, Deaf Expressions, where I teach sign language classes, workshops, presentations, tutoring, and consulting as well as do artwork.


I have been married to my best friend, Kenny, since 1994 and he interprets for me when we go out. He is hearing. We have three hearing children: Mollie, Jacob, and Natalie who all sign fluently.


I enjoy doing crafts, reading, studying ASL linguists, and hanging out with my family. I was saved as a child and baptized as a teenager. My relationship with God means everything to me. I look forward to teaching more ASL classes with FA.
