well friends, ONCE AGAIN i am asking for prayer for DH’s teaching position. this year he is teaching elementary level kids, some with severe behavior issues. DH really loves his job, and i always say he is perfect for this role because he lets everything roll off. nothing bothers him about it, and he loves the people he works with too.
in recent reviews of his performance, it was suggested that there are some areas that can be improved. dh agrees, since his day is completely hectic, and he knows that there are just some things that have had to be pushed aside. but then, at the end of the meeting, he was reminded that there is no guarantee that he will be back next year. he is really stressed and honestly, a bit devastated since he thought he was having a good year!
now we are both nervous and stressed because of debt. we are really proud that we have paid off almost half of our debt over the past two years, but still have a good sized hunk to go. without his check we don’t know what we could do. an even bigger worry of his is that if he is eliminated, he won’t find another position.
i’ve been talking to a couple of friends at work about it (and of course today our conversation-nothing really terrible said- was maybe overheard by somebody who lives in that district- PLEASE PRAY they didn’t hear us!!!) and they will be praying. please join us in prayer for the coming monthes that it works out and his position is spared.we wouldn’t even really care if he got transferred within district, or had to take a paycut, we just need him to stay employed for about two years (we would be totally debt free then)
we never thought that with two Master’s degrees he would ever have to worry, but i guess that doesn’t matter. we know he’s a good teacher though, because he was in his last two districts 10 years each, before the last school downsized and cut several positions…
our family thanks you all for your support and prayer!!
