Millennial Expert Ana Homayoun, will Speak on Social Media Wellness

Dear Parents/Guardians:

On January 16, 2019, teen and millennial expert Ana Homayoun, will be visiting our district to talk about the important topic of Social Media Wellness. We are delighted that she will be delivering three phenomenal programs that day: one for all ninth grade students, a second for staff members, and finally the parent program, which is part of our Wellbeing Speaker Series.

Bookends Bookstore will be on-site to host a book sale and signing at the conclusion of Ana’s presentation. Books can be pre-ordered at Bookends for this event or purchased that evening at George Washington Middle School.

Ana Homayoun is an author, speaker, and educator. Ana is the founder of Green Ivy Educational Consulting, a Silicon Valley-based educational consulting firm and has spent the past seventeen years working with students, parents, and educators around the world. Her latest book, Social Media Wellness: Helping Tweens and Teens Thrive in an Unbalanced Digital World, discusses modern social media dilemmas and offers prescriptive solutions. Her first book, That Crumpled Paper Was Due Last Week: Helping Disorganized and Distracted Boys Succeed in School and Life, quickly became a classic among parents and educators for the pragmatic approach to executive functioning issues. Her next book, The Myth of the Perfect Girl: Helping Our Daughters Find Authentic Success and Happiness in School and Life, explores the real-life dilemmas of young women today and provides strategies for finding authentic success and happiness.

Ana’s work has been featured in The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Atlantic, USA Today, Psychology Today, ABC News, CNN, and more. She is also a frequent guest on NPR.

We hope you can join us.

Sincerely,
