Jenna Bush Hager isn't resting on her laurels since leaving the White House. In fact, her current duties may be even more high-profile than when her dad was president. During the day, she splits her time between the Today show and Southern Living magazine. At night, she enters mommy mode, tending to the needs of her 1-year-old daughter, Mila. And if those tasks weren't enough, she recently became the spokeswoman for Bing's newest educational effort, Bing in the Classroom. The free program, which officially launched on April 23, provides a safer search engine for kids to use in school. In addition to setting strict filters to block out any adult content, the school-only search engine allows kids to do research without being bombarded by advertisements, keeping students on task and preventing them from stumbling across inappropriate content.
As a former elementary school teacher, Hager believes the program will be valuable to everyone involved in education. "I'm thrilled to be partnering with a program that I know will help so many students and teachers around the country," she says.
I sat down with the former first daughter — in supersmall desks, no less — to talk about education, technology, and, of course, motherhood.
