Help!!! Struggling to complete my degree. I’ve been in a teaching role at my school since the beginning of the year. I’m at nearly 90 credits of college course work complete. I’m in Texas and there aren’t many options that can get me closer to certification. Any help or advice? I don’t want to lose the role I’m in. It’s literally what I’ve been groomed to do for the past two years. (& yes I’ve been in school during that time.)

It seems that I should also transfer the money I want to save (cont)
