August 2023 Announcements

Parents and Students:

I hope you are doing well and having a great summer. I have a big change coming, and I wanted to give you some time to process it before school starts.

For personal reasons, I have had to make some difficult decisions. I need to step back from CJLC and move to Indiana to be closer to family.

Phil will be taking over the day-to-day management of CJLC, and I will run the business side of things to ease the transition for all our families and staff. I will not be tutoring very much. I will transition my students to the tutors who are the best match for each.

We will be closing the upstairs office and bringing Narjes and Carol downstairs. Phil will take over my office, and Gen will be in the same office. Dave will be available only in the evenings. Tena will be taking a break for a little while and may be back in the spring.

I will be finalizing the fall schedule and will send out the sign up information by the end of the week. I will keep you updated as we move forward.

We want to continue to support you the best we can. There may be delays in call and email response time as we make this transition; however, we want to have things in place by the start of school on August 16th. We don't have everything figured out yet, and I am sure we are going to run into problems we haven't even thought of, but the bottom line is that I want to make this work for everyone.

It has been my joy and my privilege to work with you the last 15 years. To borrow the words of Thornton Wilder, “We can only be said to be alive in those moments when our hearts are conscious of our treasures.” I treasure each of you and all the memories we have shared. I will carry you in my heart, always.

I wish you well from the bottom of my heart.
