Thank you, and see ya around, Notebook
by Erika Owens on Jul 06 2012
Today is my last day with the Notebook. I've been tremendously lucky to spend nearly five years here working with incredible folks and getting to learn about education in Philadelphia -- and so much more.
Watching the community that has grown around this website has been an amazing gift, and I'm glad that I was able to play a role in supporting its development and evolution. Just last month, we honored our community bloggers who have played a huge role in building that community on our site and beyond. And two years ago, I expressed my thanks for being honored by the Notebook as well.
Obviously, this is a very busy time in the education world in Philadelphia. There's also a lot going on in the journalism and tech communities locally as well. I've been spending a lot of time connecting with folks in those industries, and will now be working full-time at the intersection of those groups in my new position with Knight-Mozilla OpenNews. Luckily, I get to stay based in Philly! And, I plan to stay connected with education folks. Please do reach out if you want to chat, plan, or just catch up.
Thank you to this organization and this education community for being so welcoming and allowing me to contribute in so many different ways, from event planning to blog posts and everything in between.
Thank you to my colleagues who have each shared their wisdom and generosity and have taught me so much.
Thank you to our bloggers, consultants, many many interns, volunteers, and everyone who keeps the Notebook running every day, which also includes all of our eager readers, commenters, and members!
Stay tuned for news of other transitions afoot at the Notebook.
