Professor Goodall has been teaching American Sign Language (ASL) at Linfield since August 2011. He was born hearing, but lost his ability to hear due to a medical complication during his first few days of life. A self-taught reader, Professor Goodall was introduced to ASL in high school after having learned Signed Exact English (SEE) and Pidgin Signed English (PSE). Besides teaching, he is a master storyteller, performer, ASL poet and artist. His passion for the arts is evident in the fun classes he leads.
