Teaching in Schools

I have extensive experience and training working with children and youth in the area of sex-ed chalkboardsexual health education. As a relatable and fun educator, I’m able to engage a wide audience of young people to build their knowledge for healthy sexual lives. Presented in an inclusive and non-judgmental format, I focus on providing accurate and comprehensive sexual health information that is in line with regional educational standards and responsive to the cognitive abilities and social context of the audience.

In British Columbia, all educational programs meet or exceed prescribed learning outcomes for each grade as outlined by the Ministry of Education.

Topics listed here are typically part of my school-based sex education curriculum. I recommend that a minimum of 2 sessions be considered within each grade level in a school year.
