How to apply

All My Smart Hands™ instructors are required to have at least a basic level of American Sign Language. If you do not have any ASL experience we would require you to either take one in person in your city or online at It is important as a My Smart Hands™instructor that you have an understanding and respect of ASL. Even though we have an easy to follow training program that will teach you everything you need to know to run a class, we feel you need to have a basic level of understanding of the language you will be teaching.

The first step in becoming an instructor is to send your resume or a detailed email about yourself and your desire to join our wonderful team of instructors to Karen Popma, RCdirector at please put ‘Application for MSH instructor’ in the subject line.

After your application is reviewed, Karen will send you our licensing agreement for your review and will schedule a time to call you for a phone interview. This interview is an opportunity for Karen to get to know you better and a time for you to ask any questions you may have about our program.
