How long have you been a bus driver for Transylvania County Schools?

2 years


In 25 words of less describe your job? 

On our trips to and from school, I try to get to know them and hopefully instill some knowledge and even a few life lessons.


Why did you first choose to work for the Transylvania County Schools and why do you stay?

I saw the sign at BES and thought it would be perfect for me after my youngest started kindergarten. It would be an easy transition for them. I love my job. The kids-I love watching them grow as a person. Getting to know them, seeing their pride in themselves.


What is one accomplishment, at work, of which you are most proud? Why?

The kids and co-workers, and having a good relationship with my kids.


What piece of advice would you give to a new bus driver? 

Stay calm! You will get the hang of it.


Transportation Director's Comments

Jill is just a bright spot on our staff that gets brighter every day. She always comes to work with a smile on her face and a love for her students in her heart. Even though she only has a couple years under behind the wheel she already conducts herself like a 20-year veteran. Thank you Jill!!
