Tessa Duvall joined The Florida Times-Union as the education, children and families reporter in December 2014. She graduated with Bachelor’s degrees in journalism and sociology from Western Kentucky University in December 2013 and spent a year reporting on education from the dusty oil fields of West Texas before moving to the Sunshine State. Her reporting focuses on the issues that affect children and families living in Northeast Florida. Tessa will be giving a talk at Western Kentucky University in March at the IdeaFestival (link). Tessa also spoke at our annual 2015 conference “Into the Machine” and now Tessa’s local school in Kentucky is showing her TEDxJacksonville talk in every homeroom.
