Natasha Singh, Sexual Literacy Educator
Sexual literacy educator Natasha Singh (M.Ed) will share effective frameworks and strategies that can help parents open up the lines of communication about sexuality and keep them open. Topics addressed will include how to talk to your child about sexual ethics, consent, pleasure, pornography, agency, gender, and decision-making.
Natasha Singh has worked in education for over twenty years and holds a few degrees, including an M.Ed. in Human Sexuality. She has taught at Rutgers University, the Collegiate School for Boys, and the Branson School before embarking on the kind of teaching she felt students really needed: the kind that could foster sexual ethics and sexual citizenship. When not teaching, Ms. Singh is deeply involved in communities and organizations striving to foster a world free of violence and injustice. She co-chaired the Board of Center for Domestic Peace, an organization dedicated to ending domestic violence in Marin and beyond.
