From Scientist to Bus Driver to Teacher: Ray Trejo reflects on his journey back to Eden Prairie
Retirement never suited Ray Trejo. He wanted to get back into teaching, and Eden Prairie was calling him home.
That’s when two back-to-back yellow school busses, with the sign “Now Hiring: School Bus Drivers” appeared at Eden Prairie High School.
