The teachers union has a new communications director – its third since June, and LAUSD’s much-hyped “social media director” is moving on to greener pastures.

Suzanne Spurgeon, former CNN Vice President, replaces Kim Turner, who replaced Marla Eby in the summer.

LAUSD, meanwhile, no longer employs Stephanie Abrams, who served briefly as their social media director (HuffPo did a short Q+A with her in September). She recently posted on Facebook that she is starting her own business. Anyone else coming or going?  Let us know.
