Meet #A3AllStar, Mrs. Ina Robinson! 🌟 Mrs. Robinson serves as a school bus driver for the Flat Rock 2 route, a BTW (Behind the Wheel) trainer for new bus drivers, and an assistant in Flat Rock Elementary's Café during lunch. 🚌 -"What led you to be a bus driver?" "This may seem odd, but what led me to be a bus driver was always wanting to be a teacher growing up. I love the atmosphere of being around children." -"What do you value most about your position(s)?" "I value the relationships I build with my coworkers and the students on my bus. Working in transportation, you meet new people and become not only friends but family. I value friendships that I have formed from past employees and present employees. ACSD3 has the best staff! Being a bus driver, I love hearing my children as I call all of them because once you're on my bus, you become my child. I love being the first one to see them in the mornings and the last one to see them in the evening. Hearing them tell stories, laugh with one another, and seeing them smile makes my heart melt. It's even sweet to listen to them argue, sometimes! "Tell us five facts about you!" 1.My husband and I have 3 wonderful children, two girls and a son, a wonderful son- in- law and three beautiful grandchildren, two grandsons and a granddaughter. 👨👩👦👦 2. I love going on cruises, going to the mountains, and going to the beach with my family and friends. 🛳️ 3. I grew up in Iva, and I never left. I graduated from CHS in 1995. 4. I have been to The Bahamas, Mexico, and I have been to 9 States that includes my home state of SC. 🗺️ 5. I am Ambidextrous. I can also write with my toes and pick up things with my toes. ✍🏽 "How would you sum up working in education?" "Working in education can be so rewarding and great experience of a lifetime once you see your students' joy and potential. Every day is a new day of learning something different from the day before, whether it be from your coworkers or the students. Just like Flat Rocks motto this year, "Building our Future One Student at a Time." Thank you, Mrs. Robinson, for being the definition of a #A3AllStar! We appreciate your dedication to safely transporting #A3Students!
