Thank you Nicole for everything that you do. The McCall PTA appreciates you!
- Why do you feel it is important to volunteer? I think volunteering is the best most tangible way that I can make a direct impact on my children’s elementary school experience, as well as other children who’s families may not be able to physically volunteer. There is nothing like high fiveing a kid in the hall, while I’m helping at the school, who says “Hey Talal’s Mom!”. My kids are so excited when I show up at school and I’m literally showing them that helping, and being in school are two things I take seriously.
- What is your favorite thing about McCall? McCall is like the most diverse elementary school in the world! I LOVE IT! Why would I want my kids to go to a school where everyone is the same, that’s not how this world is, they go to McCall and see the whole world right in their classroom and if you don’t know the “social skills” lesson they are learning from that, day to day, then your missing that reward all together. It’s HUGE. These kids are going to be societal gurus!
- What’s your favorite family pastime? On top of being lucky enough to be in the McCall PTA, I also run a small business. My husband works full time in downtown Dallas and my wedding business has me usually out on weekends so basically any time that we have all together as a family, is our favorite. We love to swim all summer, we love to get over to a beach, and we love staying in cabins in the woods and enjoying nature! We are total “road trip warriors”, we are so down for that.
