I love working with other teachers and am available as a guest speaker or workshop leader. I’m happy to work with you to develop a workshop or talk to meet your needs. Below are some examples of workshops I’ve lead for schools and districts. I also have a list of my publications and public presentations, any of which I could adapt to a talk or workshop for your group.
