In our technology-driven culture, we are at risk of losing our ability to connect authentically with other people through well-thought-out conversation. The literary salon is designed to get people talking to one another. Delegates draw open-ended questions designed for authentic connection and then engage in meaningful, small-group conversation. The salon creates a safe space to share and practice empathy in our relationships. I will also help teachers bring the salon model to their students.
I provide all materials.
I've presented 3-5 sessions per year at all major Alberta teachers’ conferences from 2016-2018 in Calgary, Edmonton and Red Deer. I've also presented in BC for the Surrey Teachers' Convention in 2017 and 2018. Thank you for considering me for your conference!
