Janice, thanks for your great service as bus driver. Recently, I visited with a cousin in rural Arizona who just retired from her >20 years as a bus driver. I am in admiration of the patience and daily instruction that you provided to students everyday! Enjoy your retirement!!

Thank you for such a heart-warming story. It is so nice to hear that this bus driver can enjoy that job. She has much more patience than I do.

Thank you to her for a job well done and to the Voice!

Nice story.... All the bus drivers in the MVWSD are great... I see them everyday at Landels Elementary School as I supervise the parking lot and ride along on some field trips... Jose, Liz, Jackie and Theresa... They care about their job and they care about the kids... Thanks for doing what you do... and do it very well...

As far as heart goes Janice really has the corner on the market. Reading the article sounds just like her in her private life. Her public face is the same person she is in private. Warm, caring, bubbly. Her outlook is one that most of use could only hope to carry with us.
