Cost to student teach, new career
I'm making a big lifestyle change to become a teacher, after having been a commercial photographer for the past twenty years. I have been attending graduate school while working my day job. I have finished my coursework and will be student teaching in the fall of 2015. Unfortunately I will need to leave my "day job" before I can student teach. My company is making that easy for me by sending my job to Canada. Student teaching does not pay a salary, plus I will need to pay tuition!
My wife and kids are working as hard as they can, but I am the main breadwinner and the one who pays the mortgage. I will need to borrow thousands of dollars without your help. Please help me reach my goal of becoming a licensed elementary school teacher without incurring a monster debt burden.
You will not only help me and my family, but you will be helping hundreds of kids too! Who knows how many students I will be able to teach in my lifetime? I work well with special needs students, kids from diverse backgrounds, and kids who are struggling. I have a high GPA (all A's!) and I'm excited about my new career. Being a good effective teacher will be the ultimate reward but I will need to make it through the experience first. Please help.
Thank you again to all of my past supporters, your generosity is appreciated.
Thank you again to all of my supporters and have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
