> independent contract work opportunities. My last day at the Lighthouse
> will be September 29, 2011.
> Why am I making this big change at this time? Working as an independent

> I've been close to doing it at DePaul University for some time, and feel

> Two reasons that I feel as I do. First, I only need a few classes to
> finish. Some of what I need only meet during the daytime hours and do not
> meet on-line, so it's impossible to take them while working. The bigger
> reason, though, is that I have an advanced project to do that I will need
> time for. I'll be able to set my own hours for work which means I'll be
> able to devote whatever time I need to finishing that project, of course,
> getting my work done first.
> I will definitely be contracting with one company, possibly a couple of
> others. For those who have asked, I do not yet know what the Lighthouse's
> plans are to fill my position; I know temporarily they will have an intern
> working in the position and would hope they will fill it on a full time
> basis and have encouraged them to do so. The best way to keep up on this
> is to contact my current Supervisor, Tom Perski, either at 312-997-3657 or
> tom.perski at chicagolighthouse.org. You can also check out the Careers link
> at the Chicago Lighthouse's website, www.chicagolighthouse.org for
> information. Some have asked if the Lighthouse would consider hiring
> someone to fill my position remotely. That has not to this point been
> considered, but it would be worth asking that question of Tom.
> I thank everyone in advance for your good wishes, support and even
> concern. Karyn and I have given this a lot of thought and we are both
> comfortable with my decision.
