Preggo up close copyHello! My name is Leah Janowiak and I live in the great place of Jackson in beautiful Michigan. I love being a stay at home Mom and have reaped so many benefits of teaching ASL to my little one. I have always had a love and desire to learn ASL, especially since camp my senior year of college. Camp was where I spent a lot of time with 2 deaf kids who taught me some basic sign language. Since high school, I went on to Spring Arbor University to get a Bachelor’s degree in ministry, have traveled the world, and got married to my best friend, Mark. We spent 2 years living abroad in Cameroon and shortly after, moved back to Jackson. It’s here in Jackson, where we had our wonderful spunky little baby, Brie. After teaching in a variety of settings, age ranges, and subjects, I knew I wanted to teach ASL with my daughter. I have absolutely loved learning alongside her and have seen the benefits of ASL first hand. I am excited to share this wonderful, effective ASL program called My Smart Hands with others to help babies, parents and families to connect and communicate with each other, themselves and the world around them!
