Tiffany Poirier is an elementary teacher, philosophy aficionado, and the author-illustrator of a critical thinking book for children titled Q is for Question: An ABC of Philosophy. Tiffany aims to help children learn the skills necessary to unleash their inner philosophers by teaching through enrichment programs in the public school system. Her hope is that students will be empowered to think critically, think creatively, and be the vibrant leaders that this world persistently needs.
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
