Best of Luck, Francesca!

Today marks the end of an era for Education Week Teacher: Our diligent and steadfast intern, Francesca Duffy, is leaving our ranks for a new position.

Ever amenable, Francesca, who recently completed a master's degree in journalism, has written about a wide range of topics since she came on with us two years ago. Some her more popular pieces were on teacher career paths, cheating, assistive technology, and the importance of experiencing failure. (That last item was not a commentary on her own work!) She's also headed up our social media efforts and published Storify features on flipped classrooms and teacher appreciation.

Her most-read article—and one of our most-read articles of 2011—was about a Heritage Foundation study concluding that teachers make too much money (the co-author of which has since left his job in light of some questionable positions he holds on intelligence and race).

We'll miss Francesca's quiet determination and calming presence in the office. Luckily she won't be leaving the education field entirely—she's taking on a new position as a communications and advocacy specialist for the American Association of School Administrators. Thanks for a great run, Francesca!
