Every student who Ree Rykiel helps on the bus each day is different and she says it takes a team to meet their needs.
A former health room aide, Ree has been a bus attendant for 16 years. Her job ranges from helping students get on and off the bus safely to being there for them during the ride.
Ree says she’s able to support students because she works with a bus driver and others who share the same level of dedication.
“What keeps me coming back is the camaraderie,” she says. “We’re good at our jobs and we like what we do.”
