Funding

Last year my school lost their funding from CPS, which means we’re scrambling to operate with about $145K less in our budgets this year than last year. It means, if it wasn’t for TFA, I wouldn’t be getting paid till the end of October. So I called my MTLD and my placement director and it basically came down to this: Stay or go.

A year ago I would’ve given anything to get out. Now I can’t imagine leaving my kids. They’re everything, and I’m not going anywhere without them.
