A native of Maine, Regan enjoys weekend trail walks with her 3 dogs and 2 children year-round. Time on the trails help her think outside of the box for raising standards in ASL pedagogy and outcomes in students. She graduated from University of Southern Maine with a BA in ASL Linguistics and Interpreting under Dr. Judy Shepard-Kegl and furthered her education at Teachers College of Columbia University with a MA in Teaching Sign Language as a Foreign Language under the guidance of Dr. Rusty Rosen. In the meantime, Regan built her experience in ASL Pedagogy as a teachers aide, intern student instructor, and a professor for both deaf and hearing students at various grade levels. Regan is currently an adjunct teacher at USM teaching ASL and Interpreting courses and freelances as a CDI in various places, including PreK-12 settings.
