    Crossing guard sees the humor in her job

    Crossing Guard is probably right up there on the list of rewarding, stressful, least-appreciated jobs.

    But let’s not assume. Instead, read this essay from Christine Waldman, who works as a crossing guard in Phoenixville. Waldman has been able to find the humor in her job, from the common sense training, right down to the neon vest.

    You see them pretty much every day, so why not find out from the source what it’s like to be a crossing guard?
