February's EXTRAordinary Worker


Mrs. C

School Bus Driver
Chesterfield, Virginia

Mrs. C

Mrs. C, as the kids call her, goes above and beyond the definition of a bus driver. The kids adore her. She is constantly turning the ride home into education opportunities. She asks the older kids to sit with the younger kids and help them practice reading. Every time they complete one book, they get to visit "the treasure box." She's doing a similar thing with sight words. She hands out flash cards when the kids get on and if they get them right, straight to the treasure box. My daughter (5) came home and was practicing tying her shoe, a skill we had not yet begun learning. Who was she learning from? Mrs. C.
