About

Hola! I’m Elizabeth “Lizzy” Martinez. I’m deaf Latina (2nd generation Mexican-American). I was born deaf and raised in Michigan. I currently live in Washington, DC with mi familia. I’m a faculty member at Gallaudet University. Originally with the English Language Institute for one year, from 2014 – 2015. Then from 2015 to now, I have been with the Department of ASL and Deaf Studies. I attended Gallaudet University where I obtained my bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education in 2008 and eventually retrieved my master’s degree in Sign Language Education in 2014. I hold Provisional Certification with the American Sign Language Teachers Association (ASLTA) and Quality Matters (QM) Online Teaching Certification. My score of American Sign Language Proficiency Interview (ASLPI) score is 4. I worked many different jobs, mostly teaching college second language learners of ASL. I also interned in Deaf school as ASL teacher teaching primary language learners, also known as first language (L1). I absolutely enjoy teaching ASL to any ages, from birth to adults. Because of my passion for ASL and deaf culture, my goal in life is to spread awareness to all.
