Crossing guard


This is Bobbie. She is the crossing guard for the Alameda Elementary School children here in Downey. Every school day she assists the children and parents in safely crossing a busy intersection. Unfortunately, not all the parents take advantage of Bobbie's services. Instead, they choose to jaywalk with their children across Alameda through traffic, teaching them it's OK to break the rules if you're in a hurry.

I remember when I was in 6th grade, I was appointed to be a "safety monitor." I got to wear a metal badge on my arm and one of my duties was to be the crossing guard for my schoolmates.

What extra responsibilities were you given in grade school?
