I welcome the opportunity to lead one of the workshops described here for your group or organization.  Both are hands-on, experiential workshops aimed at stimulating a rich conversation that will continue after I'm gone. No lectures or PowerPoints! These workshops grow out of my own work with hospice patients and out of more than 25 years of guiding discussions in the classroom.  I began my teaching career at Exeter's Harkness Table, and I spent 22 years teaching English at Princeton Day School, where I chaired the Upper School English Department for 13 years. I've served as a hospice volunteer with Princeton Health Care Services Hospice since 2010.  I've led these workshops for hospice volunteers in Princeton and at the New Jersey Hospice and Palliative Care Organization's Annual Volunteer Conference.
