Please consider helping me pay my legal fees after reading this story.
In August I stepped back from subcontracting with a company because of irreconcilable differences.
I began working on my own to be a consultant for teachers looking for support.
Since then, that company I left has threatened me with litigation (with what I believe to be false claims). I hired a lawyer who has responded to all claims, yet I continue to receive more letters to respond to.
I have paid $1,300.00 so far, currently have a bill for $1,006.89, plus un-billed time in January, and this is not yet resolved.
I love my job teaching Spanish at my school and have grown to love teaching teachers and facilitating professional development as well.
My hope is to continue consulting with teachers and schools in New England, and across the country about best practices in the World Language Classroom. I also plan to continue supporting teachers by updating my blog www.deskfree.wordpress.com with resources for teachers, and my twitter @profeashley and Facebook "Desk-Free with Profe Ashley" pages. I love inspiring other teachers and am in turn inspired through this work.
If I'm unable to pay these legal fees, I may need to give up the consulting and coaching work that I've grown to love. If you would consider giving, I would appreciate it.
