Green's sessions are specifically tailored to the needs of the school. She is equally comfortable working with teachers as she is with students.

She also works in the areas of social studies, English, and character development with a strong base in improvisation and derived theatre. A favorite workshop is using expository text as inspiration for songs. She also employs theatre techniques as classroom management strategies.
