Moving on

Posted on: October 29, 2008


Pending my background check, I am the new coordinator for the Learning Resource Center at the east campus of Blackhawk College. Yes, I’m going to be the boss woman. I’m excited about the prospect of moving back to Illinois.

For those of you who don’t know me well, I’m originally from IL. Almost 10 years ago, I left to get married and travel the world. The married thing has been wonderful. There hasn’t been too much traveling of the world. It feels right to finally be returning after a decade. It’ll be good to be closer to family.

And the job is fantastic opportunity for me. I’ll have the freedom to try new things and really spread my wings. Plus, no more tenure rat race. Although I am on track to get tenure and shouldn’t have had any problems meeting the requirements, it will be nice to feel that my research, presenting, service and etc. are coming from a pure desire (on my part) to be involved in the profession. They are already doing some great things in the area of instruction and I’m looking forward to building on this foundation.

I don’t have a start date yet. It will likely be in early December. There are a few projects I want to finish working on here before I go. It would also be nice to know that they’ll have to open position filled so that I’ll just be leaving one hole.

I’m still in a bit of shock. It’s amazing how things fall into place sometimes.

As of now, my job hunt (short as it was) is officially over. *happy dance*

Congratulation!!! Sounds like a wonderful opportunity.

Congratulations! That’s wonderful.

Congratulations! I’m glad you are going to be closer to your family!

Congratulations! That’s fantastic news!

Congrats, Jillies! You sound really happy about this. Where exactly is Blackhawk College? How long will you and Jeff have to be apart? Any chance you might stop by and visit us on your way to IL? OK, OK – enough questions for now. 🙂
