I'll admit when I first got here though, I was wary. First because I had just emigrated and had to furnish an apartment, settle the girls, work out where/how our life would be. And second because I have a chance to explore all sorts of things while I'm here in SF and didn't want to get sucked into the girls' lives too much if I could help.
So much for that then. I now find I have three roles on the PTA next year:
- Co-chair of the Greening committee, which is mostly about the school garden which I love working in especially as I no longer have a garden, just a very windy deck
- Teacher liaison which I think means if teachers want something they have one person to go to, but so far has meant me badgering them for info with mixed success
- and editor of the PTA newsletter which doesn't yet exist but will.
