In the process of training for new teacher certification; if all goes well, I'll destroy my commute and be able to walk (currently 30 mi), get a $5k increase, and be eligible for an additional 17.5K forgiven.

Math test, here I come!

So I did certify for math; however, I switched districts, and left the Math behind to return to High School English... which meant I can only get 5.5K forgiven.

However, this month I just made my last out of pocket loan payment! So long as I teach one more year, all my outstanding loans will be forgiven May 2019!!!
