I told this lie, and now I could lose my home

Columnist Amy Dickinson (Bill Hogan/Chicago Tribune) 

DEAR AMY: I am a mother of two young kids and am in the process of buying a house.

I’m worried about work, because I have exaggerated my credentials and have put myself in a very precarious situation.

I’ve been a teacher for 12 years, and claimed I had a certification that I don’t actually have. The certification I claimed to have doesn’t have an impact on the subjects I teach, but I am worried that all my exaggerations may come to light soon because my position is changing. Coming clean could be detrimental to my family and our future.
