His or her day starts%ith a complete P r c - t r i p In.spection of t h e s c h o o l bu.s, which involves checking 48 .separate items on the bus.

T h e driver must listen on the two-way radio for m e s s a g e s from the office or other drivers. T h e r e are connections to be made with other school buses. There are careless motorists and pedestrians lo avoid, logging trucks to look out for, gears lo shift, seven m i r r t i r s to watch, and nine dash gauges to monitor. If t h a t ' s nol e n o u g h already, i h e driver has to then attend to his or her main jt)|i looking after the kidsll The driver has to ensure that students stay safely in their seats while the bus is moving, get on and off safely at the bus stops and behave themselves while on board.

I am not sure why. The only rural school I have done time in is Nazko Valley E l e m e n t a r y S c h o o l . .Maybe people think all rural schools a r c a l i k e . M a y b e they a r e right. I. am not sure. I'll talk a bit about what il is like to teach at this rural school. First, there are ^3 stud e n t s at Nazko.. They range from Primary 1 to Intermediate 4 ((}rades K - 7) and from 5 lo 14 y e a r s of a g e . T h i s means that they are relatively short. This is nice. It is the only place in the entire world where 1 feel tall. T h e r e a r e 3 t e a c h e r s al Nazko School. Linda Kishkan, my w i f e l o w h o m 1 a m married, teaches Primary Year 1 to Year 4 students. She is a good teacher and the children like h e r . D o r e e n Patrick teaches Carrier Language and Culture to all of our students. She is also a good teacher and the children like her. I teach grades 4 through 7.1 asked the Dan Kishkan: Nazko principal children whether I am a good leachcr and whether they like me. 1 received 14 blank stares and 1 shrug. I am nol sure. Teaching in a rural school means that you have probably known most of the students s i n c e t h e y w e r e b a b i e s . It means that some of them are p r o b a b l y m e m b e r s of your own family. It means that you are probably on a first name basis with all of their parents. Tiiis means that at school 1 am often r e f e r r e d to as " D a d " , " D a n " , " U n c l e D a n " , or "Kishkan". Getting students to say "Mr. Kishkan" is like pull- / asked the children whether I am a good teacher and whether they like me. I received 14 blank stares and 1 shrug. I am not sure. ing teclh - only harder. I do nol believe I have ever been called " S i r " . . . e x c e p t by my daughters after they'd been in high school for a coupLc of years. Teaching in a rural school m e a n s that you will gel lo KNOW your community and your c o m m u n i t y will gel lo know you, warts and all. Il means that you will share in the celebrations and triumphs in your n e i g h b o u r s ' lives. It also means that you will share t h e i r h u r t s a n d s o r r o w s as well. It m e a n s that you will k n o w t h e dog^s^on t h e playground by name. Il means that you will probably also know the cow that d o n a t e d second base. Teaching, at N a / k o means that .School District mail arrives once every two weeks. Full of notices about meetings held t h e p r e v i o u s w e e k . It means having to use a radiot e l e p h o n e with no privacy. This leads lo finding out that there are people out there who m o n i t o r t h e t e l e p h o n e fre(juency the way others listen to the radio. One of the things it meant for me was finding out that 1 have a c o m p u t e r i z e d a n s w e r i n g service in O u e s nel...2 years after it was installed...that I can only access from a phone in Ouesnel...if I could figure out how...and if 1 had a phone...and if 1 lived in Ouesnel.
