Today I made a difference by being a kindergarten bus helper.
Even though I am a bus helper all school year round, it is especially challenging in the winter because I have to help my kindergarteners get dressed to go outside at the end of the school day. Usually, I have to move fast, and do you know that kindergarteners like to be dressed a certain way? They do. Ryan likes his boots on first and then he likes to stick the bottom of his pants in his boots perfectly. He always keeps starting over if they are not “done right.” Felicia has to have her coat zippered all the way up to her chin and she looks like a little eskimo in her coat.
Today, I helped Ryan because he was a little behind on getting ready to leave. Usually I have five kids to take care of, but today I only had four because Felicia was sick. This gave me a little more time. Some kids get overwhelmed taking care of little kids, but I really like it.
My kindergardeners names are Ryan, Callan, Angela, Felicia and Luke. I also am a bus helper in the morning when I go to school. I get to count kids and help the bus driver. I really like my bus driver.
