Date: Thursday - February 01, 2018
Time: 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM
Location: ULB Theater

6:30pm - Commuter supper
7:00pm - 8:30pm - Presentation and Q&A

Deborah Roffman, MS, a nationally acknowledged expert on human sexuality education in independent school settings, teaches this topic in the lower, middle, and upper schools at The Park School of Baltimore, and has taught as well at several other schools in the Baltimore/Washington area. She has consulted nationally with more than 400 private and public schools and is the author of three books for parents and teachers, most recently Talk to Me First: Everything You Need to Know to Become your Kids’ Go-To Person About Sex (Perseus, 2012). She presents on a full range of topics connected to sex, gender, and reproduction, including such timely issues as sexual and gender diversity. Debbie is widely known for her ability to help parents and school personnel embrace comprehensive sexuality education from the earliest grades, through her laser focus on clear and present development needs, our collective adult responsibilities in meeting them, and the common ground of values that parents and schools deeply share but often overlook.
