The job I lost
I have been a preschool teacher for 20 years. I worked at a school and the first three years were fine. The next Sept., everything I did was wrong in my bosses eyes. She was making my life miserable and I was the highest paid one,and she wanted me gone. For 7 months I went through hell, but I stayed because of my kids. Other teachers knew what she was doing,and when she did fire me, not one of the teachers would suppport me. She intimidated everyone. I was able to collect,because she unjustly fired me, so she made it her mission to slander me to anyone who called about me.
What it's like being unemployed
It's the worst. Not knowing where or if you will work again.I went back to school after I had my three kids,and it was all taken away by a spiteful person. I worry about our bills and have had to ask for help. I feel unworthy when for years I felt so alive going to school and seeing the kids everyday.
- I made the most with the money I collected.I was able to pay a bill once a week,and now I can't even do that. I started helping out a couple of elderly ladies I know with making meals, housekeeping, giving them rides to appts. I am still helping people,but it's not the same. I kept notes when I went through hell at my job, and that helped my case,so I was able to collect.
