  •  When I tried to move to Seattle... (9+ / 0-)

    ...after my surgery, no college would take a chance on me.  I got one interview for a faculty position at a community college.  I was overqualified for every other job I sought.  Not even selling teaching supplies.

    I was using cash from my credit cards to pay my credit card bills.

    --Sorry, your comment made me flash on that.--

    Many of our students are barely making it without throwing college in the mix and are stressed out of their minds.  They have children, jobs, family crises.  Some of them have to dodge bullets to catch the bus to the campus.  Occasionally one of them doesn't make it.  

    We have to band together to be a safe space.  We are a small campus and try our damndest to do that.

    Teacher's Lounge opens every Saturday between 11 am and noon. It's not just for teachers.
