although I don't think I'm crazy. I'm an officer in our PTA (reluctantly) and am becoming so sorry I said I'd do it. The majority of the women (only a couple of men) are nice, well-intentioned though cliquey and are in it to improve the school. There's some ego involved for everyone, but there is one woman who just constantly causes problems. She's great at fundraising, but can be really nasty & she needs way too much attention for everything she does. And the principal seems to love her, but that's because she's only sweetness w/ her.
Anyone have similar experiences? How do you deal with someone toxic in this situation?
I've avoided PTA always because of this, but now I'm in the middle of it!

I've attended one PTU meeting, and will never do it again. Unfriendly and rude. I now know why they have a hard time with parent involvement.
