This is the last Friday before the holidays. We wish all our readers a happy Christmas and a restful break. Thanks, too, for a great response in 2002 - the year we relaunched alongside a new sister magazine, TES Teacher. We just couldn't do without your letters and emails, your ideas and articles, so please keep them coming in 2003.
Friday magazine is the place to share professional woes and joys, where you'll find answers to career questions and whole-school matters. Whether you're an NQT or an experienced teacher we'd love to hear from you. And if you've never nominated a Friday Hero - make 2003 someone's year.
For the next month you'll find firm favourites like My Best Teacher and Talkback in The TES main edition, so don't forget to buy your own - the magazines return on January 10.
