Never have I worked for a 'private' facility, till now. Totally different caliper of staff, students, and families.
Exciting experiences each day. Transportation coordinator is a Gem of a man! As far as finances for operations & activities...the sky is the limit.
However; that said, I have no benefits, no sick or personal days, and no retirement & medical insurance. As I grow older, the latter 2 have become extremely important.
I've learned that monies are not that important when respected & complimented for a job well-done. My co-workers are the Best! Together, we keep the drivers motivated!
The most strain full part of my route is my student location. I don't drive district, but counties. I'm in the Cleveland area, with inter states, construction, detours, road rage drivers, and poorly maintenance roads.
Every day is a GOOD day, some just a little better then others! I love to drive.....I love my students.....I extremely enjoy being a School employee.
