My Abel story began in October of 2018 with an interview, which initially proved easier said than done! My crazy schedule at the time complicated things immensely. Despite that, Chinesa Rahman and Stephen McDaniel went out of their way to accommodate me for an interview. For that, I was extremely grateful!
When I arrived for the interview, Chinesa made me feel very welcomed as she walked me through the initial onboarding tasks. The unity in this team effort was clearly evident when Chinesa passed the baton to Stephen. I continued to feel welcomed as the interview progressed and Stephen led me through the remaining tasks required for hire. Very quickly I was substituting in the classroom and loving it! As with any job, some days were more challenging than others. However, I knew beyond a shadow of a doubt that I wanted to teach! I am exploring the possibility of returning to college to earn a teaching certificate while I continue to substitute in the classroom.
Through Abel Personnel I have gained invaluable insight and experience in the classroom. Although I am unsure where my path will eventually go, there is one thing that I do know. I am extremely thankful for the privilege of working with Abel Personnel and for the opportunities the company has provided.
In addition to the individuals I have already mentioned, I have developed numerous friendships with fellow Abel Personnel employees and with staff members of the schools where I have substituted. Furthermore, a number of students hold a special place in my heart, but that is another story for another time. And so, my Abel story continues.
