Now that I am teaching photojournalism two or three days a week at Sandy Springs Friends School outside of DC, I will be riding the bus from the school to the Metro train station. Pearl is my bus driver. She's not only the bus driver; she is the guardian on the ride home. Two teachers got on the bus to check off a list of students who should have been riding. Questions arose about missing students and soccer practice. The children kept talking. As soon as Pearl started asking question the students were quiet. "When two adults are on the bus asking questions you have to be quiet and listen," instructed Pearl. We pulled away from the school with the soccer kids accounted for, the bus remained quiet.
