Hi Lisa, thanks for commenting on my blog! I had a civilized meeting with HR today. Long story short, I was assured the president of the school realizes this leaves me in the lurch and they will be discussing ways to mitigate this. We'll see if they deliver. Now that I've had a day to live with it, I can't wait to be done with the administrative job. How they handle the next step will help me decide if I should stay or go.
