resolved to the customer's satisfaction
I had completed my online coursework with iteachtexas, passed my certification testing which I paid for myself and was hired by a district for a teaching position. I began having some health issues and contacted the district and iteachtexas for assistance. The district in which I was hired was willing to work with me and allowed me to use my days and the sick bank days until I recovered (August, 2016).
However, Mr.Rozell, of iteachtexas refused to come to a resolution of the problem WITH me & the district and told me to resign my teaching position. I had submitted medical documentation which indicated in bold letters that I needed to be off for an extended period of time. Mr. Rozell indicated that the document was not sufficient enough for him and his organization. I was told by Mr. Rozell that I was lying about my condition because I did not want the position. Pure nonsense on his behalf.
In the meantime, I was in the process of getting a second medical opinion. Mr. Rozell demanded more documentation and stated that if I didn't submit the required documentation that I would never teach in the State of Texas again and would be sued for remaining balance of my tuition. It was a week before I received the documentation. By that time, I received an e-mail from an attorney on behalf of iteachtexas located in Dallas, Texas stating that I was being sued.I was dismayed.
How am I supposed to pay for tuition if I was forced to resign from a position I truly wanted? Iteachtexas is a rip-off. They are very rude and are only in business to take individuals money and to purposefully set individual up so they won't be able to successfully complete the program.I feel as though I wasted my time, money and still cannot fulfill my lifelong dream of becoming a teacher.
Please stay away from iteachteach if YOU want to teach in the state of Texas or any other state iteachtexas supposedly conducts their business activities.
After a post/email was made by program director, the matter is being resolved. A miscommunication occurred between myself and those involved. Please remove the complaint. Thank You!
