Walking on $unshine!


Today the teachers got paid all over our state!! Well, everyone but my husband, naturally. Also, for some reason he is not in the CACTUS system which keeps track of teachers in this state and was asked to follow up on why so this morning he called the ARL program director who pulled up his account and told him he isn't employed "half time." Right now he is teaching 2 chemistry classes and contracted to teach Astrology after 24 weeks so we thought we were good to go. Not so much. Needless to say my husband has much to sort out with the principal this morning. The worst thing that can happen is he has to fire my husband and hire someone who is already licensed, or add another class to the two he is already teaching. I will try not to speculate how it will turn out one way or the other. I am just all consumed with feelings that my husband can't seem to get a break! I find myself inventorying our experience since graduating exactly 3 years ago and it just seems like no matter what we do to move forward in the right direction there is always something waiting to kick us back and suck any progress (typically in the form of money/quality of life) out of us!!

On a purely wife level, I am so tired of the tight budget, the bill collectors, the needs list that gets longer every day, and the sacrifices we have endured throughout it all! On a human level, I am full of gratitude for how good we have it despite it all!!

Just a Texas Board of Chiropractic Examiners update: We officially have the letter giving us the green light to pay a local company to take the Texas juris prudence exam and fulfill our last step in my husband having a license in Texas! Not bad considering we sent everything in back in early May, late April!!!

  2. His school is awesome, it is the ARL that is nuts! We thought we were part time but the key term is "half time" which can easily be mistaken for part time. I will let you know how it goes. The lady was just so dismal and we suddenly felt my husband has been wasting his time teaching and excited because we thought we were well in the parameters to qualify and be a part of the ARL (Alternative Route to License) He even told her all the Full time teachers teach 4 classes so he is teaching 2 and contracted to teach another so we don't know why she shot him down on the phone!? Her last words were she would look in to it. We aren't holding our breathe! Perhaps the principal can give my husband a math class. We will just have to see. He really loves teaching, and being at that school!!!
