More challenging than bus duty

A non-instructional duty for most teachers is bus duty — supervising students as they wait for the buses to take them home. That can present challenges — preventing or breaking up fights, talking with a lonely student or helping a student get home who missed the bus. My grandmother taught in a one-room schoolhouse near Bend, Oregon. If a winter storm came up during the school day, she was responsible for getting the students home. She tied a rope to the back of her buggy, and the students held on so they’d be with her even if the snow was so heavy that they couldn’t see the buggy. What order were the students as they held onto the rope? Julie Dodd from her iPhone
