Ok, so have an invitation question. I was nominated to be a primary teacher trainer in central/south America leaving in Feb. I was medically cleared about 1.5 weeks ago. I was told that it usually takes 4 weeks for the placement officer to review things. I am currently a teacher and my district requires 60 days notice in my contract when I resign or they can hold me (which they are known to do). My recruiter told me to inform my placement officer of this situation and I did. I have emailed her numerous times during the medical clearance processes. Now that I am getting really close to that 60 day mark and I have not heard anything, Im starting to freak out! Knowing that my placement officer knows my situation, is it likely that I might be invited for a later departure date? Or will they invite me with just the 6 week notice anyway? I don¡¦t want to go ahead and give my employer notice and find out that Im now not leaving until summer!?! I know this is a waiting game, but if anyone has any advice or anything to help me chill out¡K I would greatly appreciate it!!! Thanksƒº

Have you tried calling? Maybe speaking to her on the phone might be a bit more effective? Or speaking to the APO?

Also, can you speak to anyone at your district and advise of your situation? Or, is it in the best interest of yourself and your students to wait it out till May/June and leave for PC then?

Just some suggestions.
