I am an experienced health and sex educator with a Masters in Public Health and a New York State K-12 Health Education Teaching Certification. I have had a love for health education since I was a teenager, participating in high school and college opportunities to learn and lead around sex education. I taught high school health education in the public school classroom and then worked for the city's central office supporting Health Education teachers citywide including sitting on the Mayor's Sex Ed Task Force. In addition to teaching on Outschool, I currently lead citywide health and sex education trainings - advising on policy, creating lesson plans, creating course sequencing, lead professional development workshops and supporting health educators and do health ed work nationally through different non-profits.

Health and sex education is my career and passion. To maintain my knowledge and skills as an educator, I regularly attend or present at professional conferences, join professional workshops and stay current on the latest literature. In the community, I offer parent workshops and localized classes for young people.

I am also a parent of a 6 year old. Raising him to be a sexually healthy adult and supporting his needs is one of my newer, and much loved, jobs.
Learners will be offered an approximately half-hour long assignment after each class to deepen their learning.  This assignment is optional unless a student needs the assignments graded or reviewed for a requirement of any type. Please let me know if this is the case.

Assignments will include mainly relevant videos with reflection questions. 
1. You will need a place to take notes and write - it can be paper/pen or electronic 2. All materials (articles, excerpts, videos) will be provided electronically as attachments or links 3. For class #1, we will be drawing and labeling a stick figure. Learners who like using markers or colored pencils are encouraged to bring them along to this class.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
4 hours 35 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Parents, guardians and family members, 

You are your child's most important health educators. 

To reinforce this, throughout these classes, I regularly direct young people back to their families and cultures to find answers to values-based questions that only you and they can determine (How old should I be before I have a serious relationship? What is the right age to first have sex?). 

Research shows that your teens, despite how they may appear when you talk, are hungry to know what you think and believe around topics related to relationships, dating and sexual behavior. It is my intention to help offer families more opportunities to have these discussions through the learnings in this class.

In addition, should this class not turn out to be a good fit, note that I have selected Outschool's Flexible Refund policy. While I hope we can discuss and address any issues that might arise from you or your learner, ultimately it is important to me that you can withdraw at any point during the class, with a pro-rated refund. This has to feel right - it is modeling good consent* ;) 

*Not so sure what I mean by consent? - brush up on your understanding of consent with this fun, 2:49 video Tea & Consent that I also use as a teaching tool in the class:
