WATCH D.O.G.S. (Dads of Great Students)
This is my first time volunteering with WATCH D.O.G.S. I get to come in and see my kids during the day and actually give back and help the kids. I love kids. I have a fifth-grader and I have a preschooler here.
My kids saw me on the announcements and we took a picture. I walked my son down to his art class and then I went outside with my daughter while she was doing PE. I have a schedule of other classes to visit and help.
What would you say to others about taking time to volunteer in their child’s school?
I think especially for dads, if you want to implement change – volunteer. If I’m here I can see my kids. I’m here. I’m a superhero. I can help.
I’m retired military and I go to school full time Monday through Thursday, so my Fridays are open. I’m going to school for human services but since I’ve been here today, I think I have a new calling. Maybe I need to work in a school and do something with kids because they are our future.
