About my friend:

A friend of mine has been an unemployed math teacher for a few years.  He has his B.A. and is certified to teach math, English, and theatre.  He currently subs and tutors.  All the parents of the students he works with praise his teaching abilities.  The students all pass their classes and testing after working with him.  He has struggled financially and has a family to support, so he has taken various temporary and part time jobs along with the tutoring and subbing.  The teaching jobs he was able to acquire in the past included working with juvenile criminals or extreme special needs, yet since he doesn’t have a Special Ed certification, he was not able to stay on, despite his exceptional ability to individualize and reach each student.  One obstacle he faces is that he does not have his Master’s.  He can’t get his Master’s without a job to get a loan.  And he can’t get a job unless he has his Master’s.  This has been going on for three years.

As a tutor for WyzAnt, he has an opportunity to win a $10,000 scholarship to get his degree.  Popular vote can help him to win this scholarship.

Please, if you could take a moment to help my friend, click this link and vote for his essay.  Feel free to share and pass it along to your followers as well, or reblog my post.

On behalf of Mike, thank you!

“The company which I use to find students around my area has a contest where I try to win scholarship money by writing a 300 word essay.  The topic was “If you could teach everyone in the world one thing, what would it be?”
If you could go to the link and vote for my essay, that would be great!  Perhaps mine would be one of the ten chosen based on its merit, but if it is one of the ten chosen for its popularity than your help can make a difference!
