I specialize in:

- consulting with schools on their sexuality education curriculum. This includes everything from tailored programs and curriculum writing to training teachers to provide classes for the parents and students.

“Karen Rayne has been a guest speaker for St. Andrew’s for two years now. She is highly informed and qualified to discuss topics of sex, sexuality, and relationships with the students. Both the students and the faculty find her presentations engaging and interesting. After trying a number of ways to address these topics with our students, we have finally found a resource that works!” – Heather Latreille, Upper School Counselor, St. Andrews, Austin
