It is hard for me to post this here but I feel I've run out of options. I am a single mother of a child considered to have a disability though I never look at her that way. I am also a teacher and was notified that there is a program of 7 classes I have to take to re-certify my teaching certificate and be able to keep my job. I had planned to make payments to pay for the first class and then use a student loan from there because the school said my loan wouldn't be in place until December. The class however starts October 20th. Saturday When I called the school to find out when my first payment would be do I was told that because the class starts in Oct and that is the last term of the fall semester I can't make payments and that the entire $1600 must be paid in full by Oct. 9th. It will take a year to finish the classes to keep my teaching certification thus my job. The county I teach in has only agreed to give me till Oct 2009 to finish this.(The original deadline was June 2009) I desperately need help raising the money. I don't want my daughter and I to become statistics. I need to keep my job for mine and my dughter's sake.
