The current band president is stepping down as he no longer has a kid in band next year.  No one else volunteered, and I was asked to take the position.

Ugh.

I wanted to avoid being a band officer, because the band teacher and I don't get along (I've written posts about her before) - and I know I'll come off as a 'know-it-all' even if I try not to due to my own background of 13 years of teaching band.

*sigh*

But no one else is stepping up, so I guess, I'm the prez.

I'm sure it will be great for the kids. If the teacher did her job then she wouldn't have to worry about who the band president is.

I just want to add that I'm jealous. I have no idea how you work full-time and have the time for this on top and everything else.

Actually, someone else nominated me, and I was the only one nominated.  No one else volunteered either, so...

Honestly, I'm a little worried about that myself.  We'll see how it goes :)
