As a speaker, Teru focuses on education and parenting with a unique global perspective and relevant context needed to raise our youth today. She often speaks to corporate Parent Engagement and Women’s Initiative groups to support their employees and clients.
As our education models are shifting and increasingly differentiated, Teru offers parents research and solutions on how to raise and educate their kids so everyone in the family can be productive. With “pandemic parenting” and the great educational experiment, this knowledge becomes even more vital. Teru discusses:
The direct influence parent involvement has on our kids’ academic outcomes and emotional wellbeing
How to conduct a family needs assessment The significance of a transparent family-school partnership
How to instill a familial value for education
The 8-part evaluation framework to assess a school within its larger school system
How to create a multi-layered, family-specific action plan
Parent advocacy in education reform
How to support and advance an education at home (academic, social emotional and extracurricular)
How to complement school-constructed learning with 21st century and life skills at home
Teru speaks to smaller audiences for more intimate Q&A sessions as well as to large gatherings in-person or via online webinar. Talks are often followed by individual parent sessions that focus on creating targeted and customized family action plans.
