“District Administration took a big leap forward when Judy came on board. She set a high bar for quality of content and general appearance, and the magazine (and its companion Web site) was much stronger when she left than it was when she arrived. More than just a manager, she challenged herself to learn everything she could about the vast and complex field of K-12 educational administration. In her role as supervisor, she balanced high expectations with fairness, and I was glad to work for her as both a freelancer and a staff editor.” -Don Parker-Burgard, copy/production editor at The Taunton Press (January 15, 2013)

“I have worked with Judy Hartnett for almost two years as a writer for District Administration magazine, and can say that she is one of the most professional, effective, and personable editors I have ever dealt with. As the editorial leader for DA magazine, Judy required meticulous, top-quality reporting, but was flexible and open to input regarding angles and the shaping of story content. I would very highly recommend Judy to anyone looking for high-level magazine management, or well-informed editorial materials or marketing content.” –Susan McLester, principal of McLester Content and former editor-in-chief for Technology & Learning (Aug. 31, 2012)

“Judy has been great to work with over the past three years in terms of developing ideas for columns, providing feedback and direction, and setting a high bar for quality. I’ve really appreciated her willingness to support some different themes of the education narrative, and I think she’s allowed DA to evolve around those new ideas in some relevant ways.” –Will Richardson, educator, speaker, author and blogger (Feb. 1, 2011)

“Judy is a consummate professional with boundless energy and enthusiasm. She has a keen eye for detail and is excellent at follow-through. She was a joy to work with.” –Laura Bona, senior editor, global editing—research at Gartner (March 19, 2009)

“From the start, and every time we submitted a piece, we felt that Judy respected us and our writing. The decisions that were made, the compromises that were made, were all done in a totally trusting way. Judy made our writing better; Judy helped us to clear away the cruft and helped our ideas to breathe. Judy is a writer’s dream editor!” —Cathie Norris, Regents Professor, University of North Texas, Denton, TX (Oct. 2, 2012)
Elliot Soloway, Arthur F. Thurnau Professor, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI

Judy has her finger on the pulse of what is driving change in education, and she is ahead of the curve in identifying current and future trends that are of utmost importance in education. 
I love working with Judy. She is extremely smart, she is extremely personable, and she is one of the best writers in the world!” –Sue Hanson, president of PR with Panache! (Jan. 24, 2011)

Judy is a wonderful person and is genuinely interested in the personal side of those who are working with her.” –Ken Trump, president of National School Safety and Security (Aug. 5, 2012)

“Working with Judy as an editor is a dream. She’s organized, efficient and makes great suggestions. I recommend her without reservation.” –Rob Mancabelli, educator, speaker and author (Aug. 10, 2012)
