I have to say that last Monday was one of the scariest afternoons I have ever, ever, ever had in my teaching career!!! I walked out of the building with all my bus riders in tow! I put my daycare riders in their spot and began sending my kids to their correct bus. However, in my haste to load kids, one of my kids got on the wrong bus! It was completely my fault ! I stood in front of my friend's bus for her to get on, turned around to talk to another friend, when my bus friend got on the wrong bus unnoticed! Yikes!! I put the rest of my kids on their bus and went our grade level meeting.
What do you think happened? Yep, I got that call asking how I sent my friend home! I told the office that I put her on the bus, still not knowing it was the wrong bus. Well, to make a long story short, my baby was eventually put on the right bus and her dad followed our principal to the nearby high school to get his baby!! Boy was he HOT!!
I do pride myself in taking responsibility so I called the mom later that afternoon to apologize, too bad for me I was the first one to break the news to her! She was awesome! Told me to calm down (enjoy a cold beverage) and that everyone makes mistakes. I called the dad also. He was super, super nice. He told me he wasn't mad at me but angry because my friend's big brother had tried to tell the bus driver that his sister wasn't on the bus and she didn't listen until it was too late. Still, IT WAS MY FAULT!!
As for me, Please tell me do I need to seek professional help for my problems? Would some ADD medicine help me focus on what I am supposed to be focusing on? Please, help me know what to do!! I do not want to lose anymore kids!! I triple check each day before loading them on the bus!!!
