For many years I taught college. I taught in the Deaf Studies program at 2 colleges in California. I did some consulting for a University there as well. I designed an entire curriculum for one college and was a Department Chair for a short time before I resigned to do the mommy gig. I taught Deaf Culture, Linguistics of American Sign Language, Dactylology, Interpreter courses and all levels of American Sign language. I loved teaching.
It seemed like a perfect fit for me to match my love of teaching with my love of guns as well as my personal experience with a bad guy, but it appears I misinterpreted how that was going to work. I could teach the NRA classes, but I don’t think that is what I want to do, so I have decide to go back to school and become a paramedic.
For months now I have been talking to my husband about taking some EMT courses and maybe volunteer at the local fire department, but our fire department is pretty messed up, so that was ruled out We have a really good program here that is condensed for certification, but as we did research into different programs, I thought why not just get a degree and take a longer program.
When I started down the path of gun ownership it never occurred to me to teach or have any career at all, but as things have developed I think I would like to have a skill related to my interest. Now, I know being a paramedic isn’t really a gun career, but it’s a skill that I think will be helpful to my family, my community and those I spend time around. I have always been interested in medicine and one can never have too many skills. I do not know how it will all work out or even if it will, but I am just going to jump in and give it a shot. Wish me luck.
