      Yes, she encouraged me to stand up straight, and. Invited me to her mansion to bake cookies with her daughter.. also was the only person to read to me, she read Charlotte?s Web to the class, it was 4th grade.
  • Why don't they have "School bus drivers appreciation day"? We school bus drivers are the first and often the last official school personnel the children meet each day. We can make or break the attitude of a child for that day. I greet every child when they get on in the morning often commenting on their new clothes or shoes, how well they look. If they have a poster or project I always ask to see it and tell them how well they did. In the afternoon I tell them good bye and will see them tomorrow or to have a good weekend on Friday evening. I let each child from Pre-K to grade 12 know I care for them and what they are doing. When they miss a day or a time I always tell them I am glad they are back and feeling better. If they have a brother or sister on the bus I tell them to tell their sibling, "Hello and to get well soon". Yes, kids are noisy, and yes, I could strangle a few at one time or another but they all know they are special on my bus. School bus drivers need some good vibes also.

      Thank you Linda, I am driving Summer school right now.
  • ive had a lot of good teachers when i was in school
  • From 5th grade Mrs. Lee. She was the most loving kind and patient teacher I ever had. I remember getting over 20 Scholastic paperbacks from the catalogue that year. She let us bring in 45's and dance if we wanted. And dance I did with a girl that asked me. The one I asked danced 5 seconds with me and said I was too tall.

      That reminds me of Mrs. Mac. She was our Chemistry teacher. Someone had a birthday in there about every week because she'd let us eat. I think several of them had more than one birthday that year, because the class wasn't that big! lol
  • It is also school bus drivers appreciation day! Where would teachers be today without school buses to bring the students to school? People seem to forget how important school buses are as well as all the maintenance personal that keep the schools running smoothly.
