Speaking Requests

Thank you for your interest in having Zaretta speak to educators at your event. It is quite an honor to be considered.

Zaretta believes in the power of collective learning and wishes she could say yes to all the invitations she receives but the realities of her schedule mean we can only accept a limited number of engagements. Currently, her speaking engagements are limited to:

  • Conference keynote presentations (90 minutes or less)
  • Short presentations to associations and non-profit organizations (1.5 – 3 hours)

(At this time, Zaretta’s speaking engagement DO NOT include conference breakout sessions, district professional development sessions, or individual school PD workshops.)

Once submitted, our team will review your request and be in touch with information about fees.

A couple of things to keep in mind while filling out this form are:


Zaretta’s schedule for speaking engagements typically fills 6-12 months in advance. Please note that we are no longer taking speaking requests for Spring 2019, as Zaretta’s calendar is full.


Zaretta is available most days of the week. If your event in on the East Coast, Zaretta must be able to depart your event by 3pm. No evening engagements are available. Saturdays are available only in late Spring and early Fall. Please, note, Zaretta currently resides in California and travel to the Midwest and East Coast is limited during winter months.
