Day to Day

I work with other organizations and after school programs to bring free PBS SoCaL resources to parents, teachers, and students. Our department does a lot of work with community outreach events. I assist with these. I also set up and conduct studio tours where I discuss careers in media and hold workshops for school groups. I give support in any area for the entire Education department.
