I've talked with Bus #80 for a few years each night at dismissal, as I pass her by. I know a couple of weeks ago she had a skunk under her old farm house. Yuck, poor lady. We've talked about the students we share. We've talked about the weather. For some time now, I've watched her reading on her kindle fire and then put it away as we arrive for student's to board her bus. Tonight I asked her what she was reading. Today I learned about Sue Henry and her Alaska mystery series. It was fun to hear her retell me about the series. She was happy and excited to share something she enjoys. She peaked my interest based on her description of the character and it seemed like a fun book or books to enjoy. I think I need to ask more people, what are you reading.
