public speaking


Public Speaker Since 1979

At least, that's when I started to make the newspaper for debate & oral interpretation competitions, plays, & the arrival of cable TV!  I suppose my earliest training started when I was 6 years old in church.

I share my intellectual capital on several topics . Email Me questions about speaking @ your event.  My style of public speaking is interactive, improvisational, & musical.   I'm available for conferences, parent groups, homeschoolers, educational workshops, Professional Development for teachers, & other TED Talks.   It's never to early to schedule.
