Why I Teach TS and EC (SotW 2.7)

Quick note: Sorry for the delayed post.  Normally I write things the night before and schedule them for 6 am, but with all the snow excitement and the unexpected 3-day weekend, it completely slipped my mind.

I have two students of the week this week, and actually could have more if I wanted.  It was a crazy first week back.

First up is TS.  Before the break, TS told me that he got kicked out of his house and dumped by his girlfriend all in the same day.  Since we’ve been back, he’s told me about all kinds of drama with the ex-girlfriend and that he still doesn’t really have a place to live.  He’s currently trying to find a job so he can pay for a place to live, but I don’t know how realistic that actually is.  Pray that he would be safe and that all this drama would not interfere with his school work.

Second is EC.  EC texted me last week and asked me if I could help her some on the weekends because she knows she’s really far behind but she can’t stay after school because of work.  She told me she was so frustrated that she was really close to dropping out.  I told her I would be glad to help her as long as she let me know ahead of time.  Please pray that she would take advantage of the help that is offered, not only by me, but by her other teachers as well.  Pray that she would not give up, but would persevere and finish school.
