ABOUT ME

YOU are tired,
 YOU are important, 
YOU are a TEACHER OF THE DEAF.

You are a dedicated Teacher of the Deaf.  You spend countless hours modifying curriculum to fit the needs of your deaf and hard of hearing students.  You are tired, overworked and wish you could find affordable resources that were designed specifically for deaf students by a Teacher of the Deaf.
 Am I right? 
I felt the same way just a few short years ago.  I wanted resources that connected with my students who are most definitely language delayed but still needed access to the curriculum. I also wanted resources that "spoke their language" ASL. After all, my classroom should reflect my students and my students communicate using 
American Sign Language.

I'm Heather Burgen, creative designer of Mrs. Burgen's Sign Me Up. I'm a veteran teacher, having spent more than 12 years with deaf and hard hearing students. I have taught in both public school SDC and Residential programs. I have spent my teaching career modifying the curriculum to fit the language levels and learning needs of my deaf and hard of hearing students.
 I have been there, and the struggle is real! 
I decided to put my experience and expertise to work.

 I create resources specifically designed for deaf students giving hardworking teachers of the deaf more time to do what they love.... TEACH!

I adapt curriculum and add ASL elements for my students so you don't have to!

One less thing.. right?



Just in case you are interested in my non-teaching life, here's a little about Me!


I was born and raised in Alberta, Canada. I moved to Southern California when I was 18 for a taste of the warm weather and some excitement. After enjoying that, and not so much enjoying all the traffic and craziness, my husband and I moved up to Central California and I received Bachelor and Masters Degrees in Deaf Education from Fresno State. Go Bulldogs!  After teaching in California for 2 years my husband and I decided to make the move to our best place on Earth, Idaho.  I secured a position at the Idaho School for the Deaf and Blind and have never looked back.
