IT career and school

#veterans #informationtechnology #School #careerchange #IT

Good day everyone. I am rapidly relocating due to my father-in-law's decline in health and I am freaking out a tad because this means I may be jobless for quite sometime. I am relocating to Shreveport, Louisiana where IT jobs seem to be about "who you know". A little background: I just separated from the Air Force almost 2 years ago, with 9 years of Desktop support and 1 year of System Administration. The move has been granted because my husband is Active Duty and has received orders to do so.

Ok, now my question is, If I were to go to school full time to receive my degree, would that harm me in the future with getting back into the IT job world? I figured it would considering how quick technology updates and improves. Any advice would be great, thank you.

About half way through my school year I got pregnant with my daughter & I already had my son who was 2 years old at the time. I didn't have a car so I had to rely on others for a ride to school. Finding a ride was no problem & nobody minded giving me rides everyday but it really bothered me to have to ask for rides, especially after I got pregnant as I was emotional. Anyway due to being tired all the time, having morning sickness from being pregnant & no car of my own, I decided I was going to quit. So I went into my teacher's office to tell her I was going to quit & to tell my friends bye. After I told her in her little office, which was in the classroom; she stood up from her desk & shut the door. She asked me , "How many times are you going to start over?" I just looked at her quietly. She then told me that she thought I'd regret it & proceeded to tell me how smart & good I was in school. She convinced me to not quit & so I stayed in school. Out of 17 students only 5 graduated with an "Outstanding Achievement Award" & I was one if them. I have been working ever since due to her encouragement. She changed my life & I'll never forget it. I'm very thankful to this day for her.

Salary that breaks down to below minimum wage.

I would love to work at a particular charter school. The salary offered ia little over 17k/yr. broken down, that would result in less than my state's min wage. How is that legal?

Coaches started announcing on our school Facebook page that they would love for students to come out and help and in reward for the time we were to put in will get hot dogs.

I became a part of the lives of most of the students. I became so attached to them. Even when I had better jobs, I couldn't just get up and leave. These students felt free enough to walk up to me each time they had a problem. And I felt so honored each time I inspired each of these students. It felt like home to me. And we all know there is no place like home.

I over spent money trying to make the school very high standards. But the people in the Environment didn't appreciate it.
