Hi, everybody. I hope you're all doing well. I need some advice or a shoulder to lean on. Something terrible happened. Last Thursday, I found out that one of my students from last year was murdered by gang violence. On top of that, one of my family members is terminally ill and battling a terrible disease. It's 11:00 PM on Sunday night, and I have so much anxiety and sadness. I've been crying all day and battling a terrible cold. I don't want to miss work tomorrow, but the thought of going to school terrifies me. I am a long-term sub for the second year in a row. I'm hoping to be offered a contracted position this year since one of the English teachers is retiring. If I take off work tomorrow, this will be my second absense. I'm just not myself and I can't stop crying and thinking of the student I lost. I love this job, but I feel like I can't work tomorrow. Am I going to lose my job or my ability to get hired permanently?
