Her love for educating diverse populations flourished early and often: she was an advocate for differently abled students in undergrad, taught ESL to international students at home and abroad, and eventually found her way to the NYC public school system and earned her Master's in Education through the New York City Teaching Fellowship.

The killerandasweetthang blog strives to guide followers through everything from the insertion of their first tampon or IUD, pre-anal sex enemas, and etiquette for sexing within the same friendship circle.

The Case for Teaching Kids 'Vagina,' 'Penis,' and 'Vulva' - The Atlantic normanack/flickr One bright morning in late March, Kate Rohdenburg, a sexual violence prevention educator, sat cross-legged on the floor of a first-grade classroom. In her arms, she cradled two plastic baby dolls, one brown, one beige, each with its own miniature cloth diaper. Thirty minutes into her lesson, Rohdenburg had already covered several foundational concepts of child sexual abuse prevention -- consent, empathy, body rights, privacy.
