Mrs. Vanessa Perry-Tease McNeal
My name is Vanessa Perry-Tease McNeal and I am excited about starting my 3rd year teaching ASL at Port Neches- Groves High School as a second ever ASL teacher!! I graduated from Lamar University in 2019, with a degree in Secondary Mathematics Education with a minor in ASL.
I am Deaf and wear a Cochlear Implant to assist me in hearing and I can also read lips. However, my hearing and lipreading skills are not always reliable, so I will use sign language interpreters to gain communication access between myself and other people around me.
I was born and raised in San Antonio, Texas to a hearing (non-deaf) family and they do sign a little bit. I got married a bit over a year ago so I would prefer to be called Mrs. McNeal instead of Ms. Perry-Tease.
This year I will be teaching ASL levels 1-4 at PNGHS. I also am a sponsor of ASL club and Signing Indians.
If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me by email or video phone.
I cannot wait to meet the new faces and have an amazing year with everyone!!
