Prior to starting her family, Linda Laursen worked as a secretary. However, after she had her children, she did not want a full time job, but something with the same hours as her children. Her mother, Marge Crase, thought driving bus would be a good fit. (Mrs. Crase was a long time bus driver, as well.) "Miss Linda" is glad for that push because she has enjoyed meeting and with working with children for the past 30 years.
She has been using those secretarial skills, too. She continues to drive bus, but added the Transportation Assistant position 19 years ago. Unfortunately, for the District, Miss Linda, is retiring at the end of this school year. She says she knows she will miss the everyday interaction with her little friends and that she has enjoyed working in a community that cares for their students. She will be greatly missed!
