About Shari Kido
Shari has been advocate for Deaf Asian young people striving to preserve their self-esteem and valuing their Asian culture in America. Also she wants to focus on Deaf Multiracial Asian-American youth who may lack cultural exposure to their families’ values, traditions, and languages. Her vision is to have cultured and authentic Asian Deaf people conveying their native celebrations to heighten awareness about cultural knowledge, while enriching, encouraging, and empowering those who will follow in their footsteps.
In 2003, Ms. Kido taught ASL/JSL poetry elements to Japanese students in Tokyo. She is currently teaching ASL full-time to students as their heritage language at California School for the Deaf, Riverside, (CSDR). She is a member of SCADA since 2004.
