I am working as quickly as I can through the mountain of paperwork required to get there. I sent passport papers in, and should have medical and supporting documents in by Monday. How long will it take to get my travel orders?

Is there somewhere I can find a checklist and sequence of stages? I feel like I am moving in the dark.

Also, any recommendations about teaching materials or supplies I should take with me now? I will obviously not be there on the first day of school, its August 29.

I received an e-mail from DDESS for a FLES position. It is for a part time seasonal position. Just wondering what "seasonal" means and any chance part time (20 hrs/wk) would include benefits. Also, can I still get into DODDS overseas if I take a stateside DDESS position? Is there an advantage/disadvantage?

I interviewed for a position and I really hope it went well.(I think it did?) But is it normal to start a position after the school year starts? Now I am just waiting to hear back. How long does one usually wait after an interview if they are offered and if not offered, do we hear a nice, "Sorry, but we chose someone else..."?

I recently viewed a referral list and wondered what the 2 numerical codes meant. Do anyone know?

When DODEA took a look at my kindergarten qualification, they said that I lacked 6 credit hours in Early Childhood. How do I make those hours up--can they be community college or undergraduate hours or do they have to be graduate level hours? Can they be through any school?

On the salary schedule, increases are listed by "steps". Are those single years?

Random question, I know, but do they sell King-size mattresses, frames and bedding on base in Japan? I'll be in Yokosuka. It's time to replace mine and I wasn't sure if I should try to do it before I leave the US this week or if it can wait until I get in Japan.
