Have you ever felt overwhelmed by parents or caregivers offering to volunteer in your classroom? I know that lots of schools don’t have parent volunteers, but for those that do, it can become a lot of work to prepare for them! If you don’t know where to start, this is the perfect episode for you.
In this episode of Real Teacher Talk, I chat about how to make parent volunteers work for you! I discuss how to utilize parent volunteers, how to include parents who want to volunteer but can’t come into the classroom, how to create systems so volunteers don’t have to interrupt to get started, and even what to do if you don’t have parent or caregiver volunteers!
Everything I mention I learned from experience. I’ve worked in a school with no parent volunteers, a school with an overwhelming amount of parent volunteers, and a school in between. Whatever your situation, this episode is packed full of ideas to help you streamline the process, so that volunteers work for you, not make more work for you!
In Today’s Episode We Discuss:
- How to utilize and quickly set up for parent volunteers
- How to include parents who want to help, but can’t come in
- What to do if you don’t have any parent volunteers
