Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. W or Jessica
Hi! My name is Jessica Waldbillig. I am entering my 7th year at Rocky Mountain High School teaching American Sign Language. You may call me Mrs. W or Jessica. In Deaf Culture, we go by first name usually. You will hear Mrs. W in the Rocky halls, that is OK too!
I love teaching my students a new language especially sign language. I love when I hear from other teachers how my students would sign across the room. (opps!) My favorite part of the class is to watch students have conversations with their classmates in sign language. I have been married for fifteen years and we have two little girls, Jaden and Lucy. My family brings such a joy to my life and loves that I am a teacher. I get to have summers off with them!
My background in ASL, I was born profoundly Deaf. I was raised to have total communication with my family (both oral and sign language, I rely on sign language and hearing aids to communicate). I have a teacher's certification with an endorsement in ASL. My passion is to spread Deaf Awareness and get our kids (students) involved in the community as much as we can! I am working on my masters in Deaf Education to pursue working with our Deaf and Hard of Hearing (DHH) in our school. I currently teach 2 classes of ASL 2 and 4 classes with our DHH kids.
My website will have information and videos for you kids to look at. If you are unsure of something, see me in class and ask questions, I will be happy to help you! You can also use our remind 101 app to communicate with me, text #81010 and in the text box- type in the classroom code from the list below:
