Project Team

This TeachSign website has been made possible by the TAB Book Project Committee.

This website consists of newly created materials and content to support NZSL teachers to teach Level One in community education. The TAB Book Project Committee and New Zealand Sign Language Teachers Association supported the development of these projects. Special acknowledgement goes to Shona McGhie and Lynette Pivac on behalf of the TAB Book Project Committee for their key role in the initiation of TeachSign projects.

Sara Pivac Alexander was the Project Leader for this overall project. Have a look at the list below which acknowledges all people involved with this work.
