This week on CHEX Daily host Teresa Kaszuba and I chatted about ways parents can volunteer at school, even if they work (or are home with younger kids, or otherwise unavailable) during the school day.
Teresa and spoke about using your skill set (she said she's been known to emcee a school event or two) or interests to get involved, and some ideas we didn't mention on-air also include tuning instruments, working in the library, or presenting to students about your career. There are so many ways to get involved, even outside the regular school day.
Just a reminder though: of course not all parents are going to have the time or ability to formally volunteer (whether during or after school), and there is no judgment on the part of teachers.
We get it, and unless you are completely and permanently inaccessible by phone, agenda or email to discuss your child's education (no one is THAT busy), there's absolutely no judgment from me.
