I love doing this job
I was in the fire department. I resigned five years ago to be with the family more. I still practice as a paramedic on the weekends – on Saturday nights and Sundays. I usually do 24-hour shifts. I’ve been at Kempsville for almost five years. This is my fourth year as a special education assistant. I started out as a cafeteria monitor and subbing. This is actually where I went to school. This house that I’m in now is actually the house that I grew up in. It was awesome to be able to come back here and be with everybody here. I love doing this job. Every day is different and it’s amazing. I love being able to see a difference in these kids. I started a garden club two years ago. My kids love it.
How long am I going to do this? Probably until whenever. I mean, because I love it! Then on my side days or when I’m not here or as working as a medic, I’m at the golf course with both my kids.
