Currently, Michelle Weaver-Fudge works in many capacities, including teaching at the Atlanta Area School for the Deaf (AASD) for 23 years, being an ASL consultant for Accessible Material Program at AASD, being a deaf mentor at Georgia Pines, being a temporary athletic director, and possibly being a pioneer for the development of an ASL curriculum that is specifically designed for deaf children. Moreover, she worked at the Learning Tree in Jacksonville, AL, which had clients who were Deaf/Hard of Hearing but not receiving full access to their mental health needs in their respective cities/states. Born in Jamaica, she attended oral school in Florida and was mainstreamed in Georgia. Throughout her life, she has experienced various forms of communication. She uses ASL currently because it gives her total access to information. She worked at Alabama School for the Deaf as a dormitory supervisor and substitute teacher before becoming a teacher. Those experiences influenced her decision to become a teacher. She holds a bachelor's degree in finance and deaf education from Jacksonville State University. Growing up she experienced a number of modes of communication, which led her to believe that ASL is the best way to communicate when it comes to accessing information fully. Once the Deaf person understands ASL, he or she will be able to express and receive information to its fullest extent.
