Just a spot for everyone coming in to introduce themselves and say hello.

Just to get the ball rolling, I'm Heather, the founder and ED here of Scarleteen, which I've been running for around 13 years now.

I've also worked in abortion care and counseling, do speaking and consulting for other organizations around youth, sexuality and sexual health, and before this, worked in alternative education, primarily Montessori for 3-6. My educational and experiential background is in alternative education, sexuality and sociology, public health and the arts.

Also, I have a pug. She appreciates it when I mention that and gets sullen when I don't.

Hello, I run the sex education tumblr http://fuckyeahsexeducation.tumblr.com/

I haven't really had any formal training as an educator, but I've gone through "abstinence class" and been diagnosed with Herpes, both of which inspired me to learn everything I possibly can about sex.

I'm not exactly a sex educator, but it might not be a bad idea for me to introduce myself here anyway.

I'm Angus, and I'm a historian teaching at the college level. My classroom work necessarily involves history of sexuality stuff to a certain extent, and outside the classroom I write and speak quite a bit about student organizing and campus life, all of which connects with sexuality education as well. A lot of my readers, and most of the folks I mentor, are college students.
