On volunteering

Jack-of-all-trades is a title I’ve been called more than once. But something I had never done until recently was volunteer at an elementary school. For an hour each week, I’ve been helping the physical education teacher with my son’s kindergarten class. I knew it was the right thing to do (and my son needed a little extra attention), so I squeezed it into my schedule. To my surprise, it has been one of the more gratifying things I’ve ever done and leaves me smiling all week long. I would recommend any and all parents give it a try. The teachers could use some help, but the true benefactor will be you and the children.

About nwharrisbooks

Born and raised in a small town in north Georgia, my imagination evolved under the swaying pines surrounding my family's log home. On summer days that were too hot, winter days that were too cold, and every night into the wee hours I read books. My face was rarely seen, always hidden behind a binding. I was nurtured on fiction. Now it is my turn to create some of my own. I live in sunny southern California with my beautiful wife and two perfect children (I may be biased). I write like I read, constantly. I studied anthropology at UCSB and medicine at SUNY Buffallo.
