Jenm! Sounds like an exciting job! Right up my alley! Except I don't play well with adults. I used to have to drink to deal with parents at Open House. I just have no patience with them like I do adolescents. I guess I am where I ought to be!

Your faith and ability to avoid being judgmental will stand you in good stead. Please keep us posted.

I believe that service helps keep us sober; I don't care if the service is paid or not. Teaching and counseling for 25+ years was service. I didn't make enough to call it any thing else! Also, it was where my heart was.

My volunteering now makes me feel useful and helps me avoid alcohol. So, it's good for me, and I believe it is good for the students.

Keep us posted!

Love, Susie
