Let's Talk Education

Want me to speak at your conference or school? Well, you're in luck! I, too, want to speak at your conference or school. More luck on your part: I will speak pro bono. Any funds you decide to allocate towards my speaking engagement  will go to a nonprofit organization I work alongside. I'm happy to talk about any of the subjects listed below or cultivate a custom speech directly for your needs.

Teaching Online Research Literacy

A study completed by Stanford University in 2016 confirmed the suspicions of teachers all across the nation: students struggle to search the internet competently. But that's okay, because we are here to teach them! Let's have an active discussion about how to teach students skepticism, bias, and then how to have them implement their new knowledge in ways that matter.

Teaching Film as Literature

For the longest time, teachers have fought the battle of books versus movies. No more! Today, we declare peace. Films provide an amazing opportunity to teach students all of the classical literature terms that we need them to apply AND give students an engaging way to create something truly cinematic.
