    My daughter was laid off from her teaching position.Since you are involved with the department of education will you be able to help.Her father was a veteran from the vietnam war would thy consider that to help her find a job.Shenis not looking to be a burden to the community ,she wants to be able to contribute by obtaining a job.She went to school to obtain a bachelor’s degree,she is been teaching to special needs children but now her job is gone Single mom has a daughter to send to school and to support.If she doesnt find a job they would ended up homeless and in food stamps.Mr.Elizondo I never thought I will be writing but went i saw you advertising in tv i felt compel to do so.I want to believe in you.That you will help her she is not looking for a hand out ,she is looking for an opportunity to be able to obtain a lucrative job so she would be productive in society.
