Future Sentinels--
Please allow me to introduce myself and give you a brief background of my experience in EMS as well as education.

I stated my career in EMS in 2003 as an EMT-1 (currently known as an AEMT) with American Medical Response (AMR). I completed the paramedic program at CSN in 2007 and continued to work at AMR until 2010 when I was hired as one of the first employees with Community Ambulance, where I became a Field Training Officer and then pursued a certification as a primary EMS Instructor. I currently still work (part-time) for Community Ambulance. In 2017 I earned my bachelor's degree in secondary education with an emphasis in Social Studies at Grand Canyon University.

I believe strongly in holding students accountable to standards of excellence. As such I feel a strong duty to help students attain those goals by providing rigorous instruction, constant communication and advisor support.

I look forward to an exciting year here at VTCTA, and am excited to meet and work with each student and their families--Mr. Chiodini
