Great group of people to work with. We take great lengths to provide a safe transport to and from school and home for these very special children that
Pros: always striving to make someone's day brighter and better!
Cons: the split shift and gas prices and travel time.
I am up at 5:00 am and drive to Holland every morning to be a positive experience in transportation for special needs children.
I drive 20 min. to work, am on the bus for approximately two hours. I drive home 20 min. to my home and return for two hours to pick up the children up from school and deliver them to their parents.
I am finished for the day and drive 20 min. home.
I have learned that these special needs children quite often are locked inside their own bodies. All are unique, many are crippled, can't speak, walk or eat by mouth. They all teach and bless me beyond what you could ever imagine. If I can communicate with them just with eye contact or by stroking their hair, making them laugh, etc. then I have accomplished my job for the day.
Dean Transportation is a wonderful company and my co-workers are like family. We all have the same goal. We try our best to give these children a great experience transporting to school and the ability to learn at their own pace with a lot of encouragement.
The hardest part of this job is the split shift and the gas prices for all of my travel to and from work.
The most enjoyable part of this job is to make them smile and to always be their encourager and cheer leader!
