Please help! My current school have been amazing through what has been a difficult time. After being diagnosed with breast cancer at Christmas I found the stress of being in the classroom too much and I have been off since then. The school have been amazing and never put pressure on me to return earlier than I was ready. I had a mastectomy with reconstruction from tissue in my abdomen last week so will not be returning to school for at least another 5 weeks. I am in the third year at my current school and it is very good. However the commute is an hour each way and for the past year or so I have been looking for something closer to make life easier. This morning a perfect job has come up 10mins from my house and in an ideal world I would jump at it. But... - The interviews are in 2 weeks and I don't know if I'll be physically able to get through the day. - how awful does it look to my current school when reference requests come in?! - would the new school be unimpressed if I'm interviewing while on sick leave?! Arghh! Please help. I am so grateful to my school and don't want them to think badly of me but this is the chance I've been hoping for! What do I do?!
