PSAC's Learning Coaches

Amanda Feldman is our PSAC American Sign Language (ASL) learning coach.

Amanda Feldman has been studying and working in the Deaf community since September of 2004. Amanda has always been interested in the Deaf culture ever since she was a small child. Her cousin who is an interpreter taught her to sign the Alphabet at a young age. When she started college in September of 2004 she found out it was offered at South Seattle Community College it was the first class she signed up for. In 2008 she graduated with a Deaf Studies degree from Seattle Central Community College. Since then she has spent years signing in her local churches, and local pre-schools. It is her passion in life and she enjoys sharing her talent with others.

About PSAC Learning Center

The environment here at PSAC is one in which all students have a close relationship with teachers and other students. From a once a week tag-up, to a one-on-one more focused experience with caring and professional guidance, the student, teacher and parent relationshp is nurtured, and an important part to academic success.

At PSAC, we are not a traditional brick and mortar school with too much infrastructure and oversite. The learning center is legally operated out of a personal residence which provides an easy transition from either a homeschooled environment, a gifted student track who needs the room to soar,or a student who needs special attention.

Parents or guardians of students may see anywhere from 1 to 7 students in the classroom. This low, student to teacher ratio, provides for excellent academics and access to teachers and opportunity for family involvement.
