As an educational consultant and sexual literacy educator, I believe that community-wide transformation can happen when parents, schools, and kids have shared language and tools. For these reasons, my approach is multi-pronged and rooted in connecting to various parts of a community: I work with schools to implement curriculum; I train faculty to teach consent; I teach parents how to scaffold conversations about sexuality so that they can have ongoing conversations with their kids; I teach students (from 4th-12th grade) about sexual ethics, effective communication, healthy friendships/ healthy relationships, cultural equity, racial/sexual stereotypes, media/porn literacy, gender literacy, masculinity … plus a whole lot more.
My teaching goals are rooted in my commitment to equity and justice: I want schools to offer meaningful sexuality education to students; I want all kids to feel seen, heard, and included. I want for parents, kids, and teens to have open lines of communication about sex and intimacy; I want students to have healthy relationships and sexual ethics. I want to co-create spaces where more young people can experience ease, safety, and joy in their relationships with self and others.
