This is where I need to be
I started working in the division as a school bus driver in 2011. This is my second year as an office associate and I love it. I love it. I enjoy building relationships with the kids. Those relationships are what made me say, “This is where I need to be.”
What makes you look forward to coming into work every day?
Just seeing the kids. Seeing their faces smiling. I see a lot of students every day, not all of them like it, but I greet them with a smile, because it’s the small things that make a difference. It’s all about making a difference, whether it be out-and-about at Walmart when you see a student or parent or in the school.
I love what I do. It’s all about the kids. I planning on pursuing my education more in the future. I’ll be a teacher, counselor, student support specialist or Special Education teacher. I want to stay in the education field. I already have my bachelor’s degree in business and information technology, but I didn’t really want to do IT. Once I started driving the bus I realized, this is where I need to be.
