I’m a PTA mom.
And I like it. I like the monthly meetings (dinner out with the girls after the meetings helps that), I like the committees and I like being involved.
I’m a mom who works full time. Because I work, I can’t volunteer in Scorch’s classroom during the day. Being a part of the PTA gives me a chance to still be involved, to ensure the teachers and staff know who I am. I want to be a visible presence in my kid’s school life.
Basically, I want my kids to live in fear knowing if they act up in school, Mom is going to hear about it.
