Another career change

I have decided that I need to find something to do to occupy my time during retirement. So what I did was apply to be licensed as a Florida teacher. The state claims to have a need for teachers, due to a shortage.

I applied for my certification in Biology and Health. I got a letter from the state saying that a Paramedic with 25 years of experience doesn't have the training in First Aid in order to be a Health teacher. I thought this was ridiculous, so I appealed.

I am now approved to teach young minds in the fields of Biology, Science, and Health.

You should make a great teacher, after working as an emergency medic for so many years, you do have some excellent skills to transition to your new chosen field. Congratulations, and happy for you
