We are the 99 percent


I am 29 and a Special Education Teacher's Aide. I work hard to educate the most vulnerable children in our society everyday. I make very little money but I love my job and am dedicated to it. I want to go back to school and get a teaching license but cannot afford to do so. My debt from undergrad is $40,000, I am afraid to add more to it by going back to school.
I am thankful to work in education because I do have health insurance, it is one of the main reasons I have kept my job for the last six years. I have very serious back problems and without my job and insurance I would be destitute right now.
Health insurance and education are human rights. Every person on this planet has the right to be healthy. Every person on this planet has the right to an education. For through education we will build a more equitable society.
I am a teacher and I am the 99%
