Influence

I had a good laugh the other day when I pulled behind one bus with a bunch of kids misbehaving. I glared at the kid who was standing in the seat and acting up. He happened to glance back at me. I pointed down with my finger and mouthed the words, SIT DOWN. The kid got a wide eyed look and immediately shrunk back down in the seat. BUSTED!

Since I bounce from bus to bus, I get to know the troublemakers on each bus. This morning when I rode the bus and seated all the kids, they took one look at me and knew I meant business. I have perfected the "Glare" that causes any child to immediately start behaving.

Influentially Glaring!

Way to go on perfecting the glare!! I love to use naughty kids from other buses as examples. Surprisingly enough other buses from other districts that we pass through have very naughty kids who are always standing and hanging out the windows. I'm proud to say my kids know better.

I was reading this post in my Google Reader and didn't catch whose blog it was at first. I thought the post was written by a teacher who was driving her car! Then I scrolled up and saw it was you and realized you were driving the bus. It's a funny story...but it would be even funnier if you could duplicate those results when you're in your own vehicle! HAH!
