  • A Guest Speaker In-person or virtual offers an excellent way to introduce or conclude a class unit. The words and experience of someone deeply familiar with the topic offers a fresh perspective from day-to-day classwork while putting a personal face on potentially broad and hard-to-understand concepts.  Please click Teacher Request Form to submit a request for a classroom speaker.
