Starting to heal
 
This was posted on another forum. The person describes what has happened to their career, and is no doubt related to global changes we are all witnessing.

I have been teaching for 31 years, and on Sept 14 my career came to an end. After the 3rd day of school I was called into the director's office. I sat down then I was told I was supended. I am a person who does everything that I am told and if I didn't like it, I still did it. I asked what did I do, I was told it was for performance standards. Also, I was told I was being investigated. Before I left, I was told to call Human Resources Monday. On Monday Sept 19. I was terminated, and I was given my last pay check, then I was escorted to my classroom for the last time to pick up my things.

Filing a grievance with the company would be a joke because the matter would go around in a circle and end up with the executive director who was there when I was suspended. I lost my job because I make more money than most teachers because I came straight out of college to teach rather than starting as an assistant teacher. They have a major budget problem and my salary and health insurance they pay out would help the budget alot. After Sept 19, they didn't hire a lead teacher until last week, they used 2 aides to cover the class for 2 months.

I tried to get unemployment and I had to go to court. I lost. I called about COBRA health insurance but found out the premium had doubled to $ 994.00 a month. I have many health problems and have been denied regular insurance.

It has been 2 months and I now can look through the clouds. I loved my job working with low income preschool kids. Yesterday I saw 3 former parents and students. I told them what had happen to me. Each parent told me how I made a different in their child and their family. All of a sudden I felt something around my legs, it was Brenda giving my legs a hug.
Each child and their parent gave me a big hug. I have made a diference in hundreds of families lives.

I have saved enough for 4 months salary, I can take my time healing mentally and emotionally. I have gone to my doctor and asked for samples of medicine. My house is paid off. Most of all I have had comfort from all my cyber friends, especially Spanner. I'm going to be OK. I was trying so hard to do well and to keep my job and they were trying harder to get rid of me.

I know the feeling.

Speak the truth, trust in God. It's tough. But after 5 years on the margins I realise some are simply not meant for the mainstream.

I can say that my faith in God came about because when I was TRULY at rock bottom and was humbled enough to ask...EVERY prayer was answered. Uncannily.

Still waiting on the lotto numbers though.

I like that story about the young Rabbi and the old Rabbi...the young Rabbi asks - "Old Rabbi, why does no one hear the word of God anymore? The old Rabbi answers, "because no one will stoop low enough to hear it".

Happens to too many good people. Unfortunately appears to be a sign of the times.

igwt,

my warmest feelings and hope you will be alright soon. Yes, it is happening everywhere. My brother is unemployed, two sisters-in-law, my uncle. 5 years ago they all had jobs...they all have college degrees.
Also, 90% of the regulars in this forum must be somehow unemployed...

Just to clarify, it was posted on a another forum, and I thought it was important. Gives a bit of 'feedback' on others situations, and context to the subjects we discussed here.
