you’ll accrue about $50K in student loans

Mine was over $81K when I got MS and it was forgiven.

Oklahoma, Texas, and Missouri make $30K or less

I found that out first hand in Texas.

I am thankful I am not in teaching now. The stress from subbing in high school for 2 local districts was bad enough to trigger my first MS spark.

Hey, at least the following diagnosis of RRMS and about 8 months of forms got my debt forgiven since my neurologist said I can’t work full-time anymore. She said I can only work part-time and only a low stress job. That kind of work does on exist in east Texas. 🙄

Thank you Jessica for further proof that I am happy to be where I am. I would LOVE to teach history, but my autoimmune system and the current state of education prevents that.
