I've been out of town at the 2007 Spoleto Festival in Charleston, SC, so I'm sorry if you've been desperately awaiting new news from Prestwick House.
I'd like to make the official announcement that Prestwick House has selected 13 dedicated teachers to join our National Curriculum Advisory Board -- keeping us up to date on the latest and greatest news in English Education and reviewing our newest products before they're available to everyone else.
So, with no further ado, our 2007 selections are:
Peter Glaser from RL Paschal High School
Don Braden from Barstow High School
Lynne Eloise Bramlett from Evergreen Valley High School
Kris Rasmussen from Northwest Academy School
Lu Ann Malkin from CA Asian Tutorial Service
Heather M. Dennull from Colonial White High School/ Academic Magnet Academy
Maureen Maroney from Christian Brothers Academy
Amy E. Conrad from Fair Lawn High School
Kristi L Price from harrison High School
Tanya Persaud-White from the Dekalb School of the Arts

Thanks to everyone involved in the PHNCAB! We appreciate your taking time to help us make products that help teachers across the country.
Incidentally, if you're ever looking for a great trip right after the school year ends, I highly recommend visiting Charleston (one of my favorite cities) during the Spoleto Arts Festival. I won't hijack this post too much raving over how exciting it is, but in one week I was able to see the fantastic Jazz Chanteuse Rene Marie, some intriguing dance from the RubberBand Dance Company, a play by Somerset Maugham, an Opera based on Faust, a funny play called Major Bang: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Dirty Bomb, and the Westminster Choir. You can't go wrong with a trip filled like that!
