Hey everybody! I want you to meet Chester. Chester was my second intern that passed his paramedic internship successfully. As a Preceptor, I tend to go for people who doesn't have any real experience so I can mold them to be a safe and confident beginner street medic. Chester had his ups and downs, but through further interrogation, I figured out his passion. That passion is Martial Arts. If you guys know me, I'm either working or training. I was able to step out the box and take the areas where Chester was struggling and apply analogy and concepts of martial arts to paramedicine.( Hence the fight pose) Eventually, everything clicked and he was a Rock star. Where a lot of people didn't think he wouldn't succeed, my partner @lotus415 and I saw passion and the drive to be a great paramedic. Fast forward to now. Chester is a licensed paramedic who is about to start his career at King American. Proud moments like this, reuniting on the streets, not as teacher and students,but as colleagues, is why I keep teaching and love the field.
