Spotlight: Teacher Shortage Loan Forgiveness

Teacher Shortage Loan Forgiveness: Sherri Meza 

When Sherri was trying to decide what subject area to teach, her advisor at Grand View University told her about the Teacher Shortage Loan Forgiveness program. That information nudged her toward family and consumer science. “Teaching is a very stressful, tough job that requires so much more sacrifice than you can ever prepare for,” she says. “The financial burden of student loans makes it hard to decide if it’s worth it because it’s not a job you do for the money. I’ve been lucky enough to have a supportive family to help me get through it, and forgiveness programs that make me believe someday that financial burden may actually go away.”
