On Volunteering

I was going to post this earlier, but wanted to get the WoW post up first.

I caught most of this Tell Me More segment yesterday in the car.  They reference this article about volunteering in a rich school.  Something I’ve blogged about before.  I don’t feel pressured to volunteer necessarily, but I do think there are probably one or two people in the PTO or in the school who equate volunteering with good parenting or good citizenship or something.  I’m helping in the classroom this month and next for a program that I think used to be funded by the school once upon a time, but is now funded and staffed by the PTO.  The jury is still out for me on whether I like this or not.  I’m leaning toward not.  I like seeing the other moms and knowing some of the other kids, but there are other ways I could do that without having to deal with glitter.  Just saying.
