When my husband, a retired corporate executive, announced he was going back to work I was surprised — but not nearly as surprised as when he told me he was going to be a school bus driver. While I remember almost every school teacher I had growing up, I remember nothing about any of my school bus drivers. Like most people, I have always viewed them as “just a school bus driver” — that is until my husband went through the rigorous process of becoming a certified school bus driver for First Student out of Chester where we live. First Student is the major school bus company operating in the state of Connecticut.
