Bus Driver Braids Little Girl’s Hair Every Day After Her Mother Dies


Isabella lost her mother at a young age, leaving her with no one to do her hair—that's until her bus driver stepped up in a big way!


Sometimes God sends angels along your path to help you. Tracy Dean is one of them. Tracy is a school bus driver with a big heart determined to help Isabella Pieri, a sweet 11-year old girl who lost mother.

Isabella lost her mother when she was just 9-years-old, leaving her with no one to do her hair like her mother used to. Tracy saw that Isabella and Isabella’s father needed a hand as they journeyed their loss. So, she would wait till all the kids got off the bus to help Isabella with her hair, styling Isabella’s hair with pretty french braids each day.

Isabella’s teacher noticed a rise in the child’s confidence daily. She noticed that the pretty braids from Tracy helped Isabella, improving her confidence! “Tracy is the best bus driver in the whole galaxy!” Isabella exclaims.

Teacher Anne Freeze had to write to the transportation department, telling them of this incredible act of service! “You have a game-changer!” she wrote in a letter to them. And Tracy truly is a game-changer in the lives of the many children she helps with her devoted kindness.

Tracy is also a cancer survivor of 7 years! This mother of four loves to look at her life as a mission. She loves to serve her students, talk with them and in her own way she is making a big difference! A reminder of the beautiful impact we can all have in a child’s life in need.
