As we prepare for the upcoming 2017 TSD Conference in Frisco, Texas, we would like to introduce you to one of our confirmed keynote speakers.
Craig Davidson is the author of “Precious Cargo: My Year of Driving the Kids on School Bus 3077,” which chronicles his experiences as a special needs school bus driver. His March 20 keynote speech will relay some of these experiences and the impact they had on his life.
“I could not have fathomed just how fun, how sometimes shattering, but ultimately how transformative driving a school bus could be…What experiences could be so monumental as to alter the course of someone’s life—to challenge them, shape them, and make them think in new ways? Most people assume those experiences would surely involve galvanic occurrences: climbing Mount Kilimanjaro or running with the bulls in Pamplona or having a child or falling riotously in love.
And while those things most certainly are life-altering—at least, they hold that potential—events that change lives can also happen more gradually and on a smaller scale. For me, that change happened while driving a bus,” he writes.
