NEISD bus driver is the best in the nation

North East ISD parents will cheer knowing their children are in good hands as they’re driven to school.

Bus driver Michael Castaneda recently competed in the conventional bus category at the 42nd Annual School Bus Driver International Safety Competition in Milwaukee, WI where he placed second overall. Being that the first place driver was from Canada, this secured Castaneda as the best in the nation.

The 12-year veteran has been competing for over 10 years and has participated in international competitions twice. Drivers from across the country compete in the annual bus safety competition where drivers must complete a written test along with several driving challenges where they put their skills to the test. Congratulations, Mr. Castaneda!
