Hi everyone,

Long time lurker, first time posting.

Here's my story and some background information. I am a 14 year Army veteran, current public school teacher and educational research graduate student. I have one class left to complete my Master's degree in education. I Was told by my principal in April, that my position on campus had been dissolved and I would be displaced to another high school within the district. The campus they assigned me to is much further away from home.

I decided to begin searching for federal jobs almost immediately. Found the GS-1701, GS-1712 and GS-1750 series all had openings at various installations within my area. I was selected for an interview for an Instructional Systems Specialist position, GS-1750-12. Still waiting on HR to respond to my request for pay step increase, and leave accrual credit.
