(Required Parent Education Event for all Upper Elementary Families)
We're all trying to keep up with technology as best we can - even as it moves at the speed of light.  Technology is amazing and brings many benefits to our lives and can also be a time suck and social deterrent.  Jennie is here to talk about both! And, inject a short lesson on empathy into the mix.  
Jennie O'Hagan believes that education is the key to changing our world for the better. She is an adjunct professor at USC, certified Active Parenting facilitator, regular elementary and secondary school guest speaker and, when her youngest was a toddler, ran a weekly mom's program, engaging new parents in conversations about empathy, sex, education and getting some sleep before the days of blogs and online diagnosis. She created a social media primer and media training curriculum and has moderated the program for young Disney Channel stars, Rose Parade Princesses and school children.

Jennie is also a television producer (starting with Sam Rubin and the early days of the KTLA Morning News) and public relations professional, giving her daily exposure to media, technology and social media. She is the Executive Producer of KTLA's broadcast of the ROSE PARADE, often produces Red Carpet coverage during awards season and is a freelance publicist for clients including the OC FAIR and Disneyland.

Jennie fits in as much teaching and media training as she can and is a contributor for Disney's publication. She is excited about what media was, is and will become and loves being part of the conversation - in the industry and with parents and children as we continue to work together to engage with our culture in safe and meaningful ways.
