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 navigate conversations about consent and sexual assault prevention; 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) a range of topics including sexual ethics, anti-racism, effective communication, healthy friendships/healthy relationships, racial/sexual stereotypes, media/porn literacy, gender literacy, masculinity … plus a whole lot more.
My teaching practice is rooted in my commitment to anti-racism, equity, and justice. When appropriate, I teach through a decolonial frame. When kids, adolescents, and adults are encouraged to examine how place, race, gender, sexuality, class, power, and citizenship informs their choices, relationships, values, and understandings of the world, they have the possibility of developing a personal and sexual ethics that is rooted in personal accountability, justice, and care for self and others.
