Presentations

I present regularly for local and international educational organizations and institutions on a variety of topics in the realm of technology and education. I started presenting at CATESOL in 2013 and found that there was a crowd thirsty for information about modern techniques for the ESL classroom. Early in 2016 the CATESOL Inland Empire chapter asked me to lead a workshop which turned out to be their best-attended and highest rated to date. I regularly present for CUE, and have been invited to present for world-class tech organizations like Google and Microsoft.

I enjoy helping teachers explore options to expand their teaching beyond the walls of their classroom. Presenting gives me the opportunity to learn from and share with other teachers, as well as to make sure I am on top of the latest pedagogy in the field.
