WASHINGTON, DC (WUSA) -- Michelle Rhee announced Wednesday she will resign as DC Chancellor of Schools, answering the question on many peoples' minds after Vincent Gray defeated Andrian Fenty last month in the DC mayoral primary election.

"Reforms will continue," Rhee said, in a somewhat elated tone.

Deputy Chancellor Kaya Henderson will replace Rhee in the interim.

"I have known and worked with Kaya for the past three and a half years, and I can tell you, she is an unbelievable candidate," Rhee said.

Henderson thanked Rhee for the opportunity to continue what she called the "immense progress," they teamed up to make in the past three years.
