On Monday evening I attended the Holly Springs ‘Walk In’ event. After the original invitation messaging went a bit sideways, things turned around with the Holly Ridge teachers putting up a website. Upon seeing Holly Ridge ‘own’ their own event, I wanted to hear what they had to say. I also wanted to show my support for teachers in general, so I went to listen and while there , took some video.
The event ran just over 26 minutes and the session you will see took place at Holly Springs High after the group walked from the Holly Grove campus. I would estimate between 50 to 60 people showed up throughout the event. There is a lot of honesty in the commentary. Running themes included the frustration at the amount of testing going on, the anxiety and stress said testing was putting on the kids, Common Core being implemented with little to no input from teachers or any training for it, data tracking and compensation issues. I’ll be looking more closely at the compensation piece in a separate future article.
The video I shot is can be viewed below in two parts. It is not edited or cut in any way other than being in two parts. The reason it is in two parts is due to YouTube length limits. The only additions made are titles and a few captions that include dialogue or clarification. The sound quality is not that great as I did not have a stand alone microphone, so I apologize for the viewers having to crank it up a bit.

My current insurance ends on December 31st and I’m not sure what insurance program I can or will be on. October 1st I went on to the Health Care Exchange site to “see what was in it”. (Kinda like Nancy Pelosi, but not). Like the majority of Americans I ran into the “Please Be Patient”, and “We are experiencing a lot of Traffic” page. I couldn’t even get to the site to create a profile for my Log In. It wasn’t until 11:30 pm that night I finally broke through the glitches and exhaustive wait time to accomplish my task of creating my user profile so I could then check out what the A.C.A. had to offer. After the steps of providing my email, creating a user name, password, and setting up security questions I received an email back after midnight on Wednesday Oct. 2nd stating:
Your Marketplace account has been created. There is one more step left before you can use your account. Click on this link to verify your email address…
I clicked on the link provided and was sent to the Log In screen, typed in my user name and password and waited. Nothing. I tried this again twice a day every day until this morning. I went on to the exchange site, got to the log in screen and the system did not recognize my user name nor password and prompted me to start over. Right at about that point I was not happy, nor in the mood to fight it; so I started over. Then I was notified that the email used is already in the system. I will not repeat the expletives yelled at my computer. My last-ditch effort was to open the “Live Chat” function on the screen and speak to one of the Navigators. Here is what transpired over the 12 minute conversation. Continue reading
