Welcome Amazing PTO Super Star!

We’re so glad you found us because that means you have a burning desire to do great things for your kid’s school and community.

You’re in the right place.

Here at PTO Answers, we know all too well the challenges of trying to add volunteering to an already packed schedule full of mom responsibilities  and you need more than just great resources (which we have).  You also need a strong support system (we have that too).

Just like all moms you need simple guidance because life is complex and you should never have to apologize for having a sometimes unpredictable schedule.

You can become a really successful (and confident) leader in your PTO without it turning into another job or becoming completely overwhelmed, you just have to know how (and we’re going to show you)!

I’ll be your guide… so let me introduce myself.

Hi, I’m Christina Hidek, certified PTO Nerd!

I remember when I first started out as a PTA leader… it was overwhelming and exciting all at the same time.

I was nervous I’d made a mistake by stepping up, and afraid I was in over my head.

But over the past decade plus of experience as 5 time President to Room Parent and everything in between, I’ve learned hard lessons from missteps and enjoyed plenty of wins too!

PTO Answers started because there wasn’t enough helpful information to guide PTA/PTO volunteers to success while avoiding embarrassing and costly mistakes.  I knew there was an easier way.

Giving back to your community should be fun and rewarding… not a hassle or headache inducing!       Let me show you how.


You deserve to have the right tools at your fingertips to make your volunteer role easier.
