I have been substituting at schools for a number of years. I have a bachelors degree not in education, but have been accepted into a graduate program at a local college to receive my masters in elementary education. I have several bills and responsibilities as well. I have to pay for some of the classes, but can’t do that and pay my bills as well. I really want to do this, I want to help our children get a great start in school. I see so much potential and want to be a part of it. I feel we need teachers with some old school training as well as the new. I am asking for help and support. I have been accepted into the University at Buffalo teachers residency program, but have to take a few classes that are not on my transcript. Any help that is provided will be greatly appreciated, and I will not let anyone down.
