How can an unconventional art form like spoken word poetry transform a classroom and a school community? Sarah Kay is an experienced and celebrated educator with a Master’s Degree in the Art of Teaching and an Honorary Doctorate in Humane Letters. She has been the keynote speaker and facilitator of professional development at many Education Conferences including the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS), the European Council of International School (ECIS), the International Baccalaureate Organization (IBO), the Association of International Schools in Africa (AISA), the American Montessori Society, among many others. Listen as Sarah uses her own poetry, as well as some of her personal classroom experiences to show how this art form is a revolutionary education tool for teachers across content areas and levels.

Spoken-Word Poet: Sarah Kay

Sarah Kay uses the power of spoken word to inspire creativity and self-empowerment in others. In her famous TED talk–a talk that inspired two standing ovations and has been seen by over seven million people online–she tells the story of her metamorphosis from a wide-eyed teenager soaking-in verse, to becoming a teacher who connects youth with the power of self-expression through her non-profit educational organization. A gifted artist and breathtaking performer, Sarah empowers audiences of any age and background to embrace words to find their voice.
