I am available to give talks, lectures, and presentations on various topics related to my expertise in sociolinguistics and in topics related to academia. I have given numerous talks to scholarly audiences at colleges and universities; to professional groups of K-12+ educators, clinical psychologists, social workers, and judges; and to community groups.

Some of my recent presentation topics include:

    • Communication: What We Say, What They Hear

    • Culturally Responsive Psychology: Diversity in Language and Culture Language Variation in Diverse Schools and Communities

    • The Importance of Language in Culturally Responsive Education
    • Language Variation in STEM Classrooms
    • How to Negotiate an Academic Book Contract
