William Martinez earned his Bachelor Degree in Musical Theatre from the University of Northern Colorado. After graduating, he moved to Los Angeles, to pursue his acting/singing career. He is currently touring with his presentation SIGNing the Song: You Have Changed My Life inspiring teachers to remember how incredible their impact is on their students. SIGNing the Song combines American Sign Language (ASL) with song and shares his inspirational story of growing up in a deaf household, discovering music, and celebrating the massive impact that one teacher had on his life. He also introduces how ASL in the classroom can create a new and effective way for teachers to communicate with their students. He is extremely honored to have SIGNing the Song: You Have Changed My Life be the DVD companion to one of the most successful educational books on the market: The First Days of School: How to Become an Effective Teacher (Fifth Edition) by Harry and Rosemary Wong. The DVD has won many awards including two Telly Awards for ‘Motivational Non-Broadcast Video’ and multiple AVA Digital Awards including the platinum award for ‘On- Camera Talent’ award for William as a Motivational Speaker.
