Help me become a teacher!

For the past three years I have been working full time, and going to school full time on a mission to complete my bachelor’s degree in education and obtain my Washington State Teaching Certificate. In order to complete my certification I have to complete a student teaching practicum. The student teaching portion of my degree is a full-time teaching assignment which makes it impossible for me to work my day job. I took a leave of absence in order to be able to complete this part of my program and will return to my job on January 2, 2018. In my current position I don't make much money but I was still able to save some for this period of time and had plans for some family help. Unfortunately, as life goes, things happened to throw my plans out the window. Financial aid did not cover all the tuition I originally was told it would, I had some unexpected car maintenance (power steering and breaks are kind of important!) and my Mother who had so kindly offered to help me out during this time was laid off last week.  Also since I am technically not working the subsidy I was receiving for my daughters after school care has been taken away so I no longer have that assistance. As a single parent being able to have reliable after school care makes sure that I am able to do all the work I need in the classroom while my daughter is cared for. With my leave of absence I will not receive a paycheck until 2/1/2018. I am hoping to cover my tuition expenses and keep myself afloat over the next few months. I am so close to the end of my program and would appreciate any help in making sure I actually get to the finish line!
