    As FN-G says, I am indeed going to America. But, as it stands, I am not going to work on Monday (the joy of banking up hours), but I do have to go back on Tuesday.

    However much the school has annoyed me, I don't really want to leave the person who replaces me in the lurch. So, I will probably spend the next 3 weeks sorting out vast descriptions on why my school is in no way configured like any other school in the country...although I'm not quite sure why myself.

    There will be bits to the job I will miss. There will be bits that I won't. I'll probably try and do a similar job in the US. Although, with no relevant letters after my name that might be difficult.

    Re: Leaving Advice

    What kind of things should I be doing to make the transition from one network manager to another as easy as possible?
    I would have thought that as a Network Manager already you would already know !!

    Yep - I'll do my best to be a British Ambassador for EduGeek in the United States. I'm not sure how. But I'll do it. After all, I will always need to ask Pointless Questions of the Week just to keep me sane.

    @mattx: I'm a network manager not an omniscient being (although, many people get confused between the two)

    @midget: I've often wondered that as well.

    Yes - quite a good one. My fiance live there. I'm only going for a month to begin with, but when my visa comes through I will go out there permanently.

    I would like to point out that I have nothing against the UK - it's just that there's a lot going for being with my fiance (who happens to be in the US).

    It's a good thing I don't read the Daily Mail - I'm soon going to be one of those pesky immigrants myself!

    Re: Leaving Advice

    tbh i'd say if the school hasn't organised the handover for you, dont worry about it. you can bet if the janitor left they'd have him show the new guy the ropes before he desserted. Hand the admin password and your keys to the smt in a sealed envelope on the day you leave and walk away.
