So I got everything in to my placement officer and he told me they would review my paperwork and then let me know when they had reached a decision. I heard back the following day with an email that said my request for reactivation had been approved! I am being put in a pool of applicants to be considered for placements in the July-September 2012 time frame. The other change is I am being placed in a primary education position instead of a community/youth development placement. I am happy either way but primary education is obviously what I am most experienced in. They said I could expect to hear from them by March 2012.
My toolkit was updated and now it says that I am an invitee but doesn’t say anything about the country. It’s a long time away and there won’t be any information or updates between now and then, but I am just going to play things by ear and see how it goes. One little bump in my path that I didn’t expect is with my parents. My dad is not supportive of this the second time around. He believes it will look like I didn’t like teaching and wanted to escape the real world and will make it hard for me to get a job when I return. I am working on that one…but he is a tough egg to crack!
Tomorrow is my birthday and tonight I am celebrating with my best friends by going to our first ASU football game as official alumni! Should be fun 🙂
That’s all for now, I will probably update periodically with random information. Until next time… paz y amor.
