Over the past 16 years as a teacher, co-founder of Princeton Learning Cooperative, and now as an author, I’ve stood in front of groups of people and said a bunch of words fairly often. I’ve become pretty good at this. You can see me in action in the videos embedded here.

If your group would like me to come and say some words to them, I’d be happy to set something up. I could organize my words around the following topics or feel free to pitch me some ideas on what you would like me to talk about:

  • the journey from classroom teacher to entrepreneur and co-founder of an educational non-profit
  • self-directed learning for young people and the idea that you do not need to attend school to create the life that you want
  • small business management and lessons from the startup of Princeton Learning Cooperative
  • personal development and creating the life you want for yourself
