A weekly look at father involvement in education through the Watch D.O.G.S. program of the National Center for Fathering.
This week's special guest is Katie LeClerc Greer. In February of 2005, Katie L. Greer began developing an Internet safety program to deliver to Massachusetts students. The the MA Attorney General’s Office was inundated with requests for Internet safety presentations, and Katie rose to the challenge of expanding the existing program she created. After leaving the Attorney General’s Office, Katie worked full time as an Intelligence Analyst for the Massachusetts State Police, where she was assigned to the Missing Children Clearinghouse. In large part due to the increasing demands for technology/Internet safety education, Katie built her programs into a private business, which included seven different presentations spanning grades K-12 and college, that she tailored to accommodate the developmental and emotional differences in each age group. Additionally, Katie instructs parents, teachers, administrators, and law enforcement officials on Internet Safety and issues pertaining to technology. Katie travels the country speaking on issues of technology and Internet safety education, and was featured in USA Today, Vanity Fair Magazine and on CNN.
