Amy Cadorniga grew up in a small town in central Michigan called Gladwin. She received her Bachelor of Arts in Speech Pathology from Geneva College in Pennsylvania and earned her Master’s in Deaf Education from the University of Pittsburgh. Her first job out of college was at the North Carolina School for the Deaf in Morganton. There, she taught elementary students for 6 years. In 2005, she and her husband moved to Vancouver. There she taught deaf students at a local public school for 2 ½ years before finishing out the year teaching ASL to high school students at a private school in Oregon. For the next 10 years, she was grateful that she was able to stay home to raise their 3 children. During that time, she and her husband also had the privilege to serve as foster parents to several children. Currently, all 3 of their children attend St. Joseph Catholic School. Amy is thrilled to be back in the classroom teaching and sharing her passion for ASL.
In her spare time, she enjoys spending quality time with friends and family. She loves exploring the beautiful PNW, hiking and painting.
