Ev's Interview
« on: April 20, 2014, 02:05 PM »
Evelyn Christensen is one of the most treasured members of this board. Not only is she a wonderful human being, but she generously shares everything she knows with the rest of us about educational publishing (and she knows a lot!). Go here:

Anyway, there's a fantastic interview with Ev that I just read this morning. Maybe she announced it and I just didn't see it before. But if she didn't and you'd like to read more about Ev, go here:

She did mention it when it first came out, but I'm so glad you linked to it again.  :)  Ev is an amazing person, and my kiddos are still enjoying her TACTIC TWISTERS math puzzle book!

Thank you, Ellen, for pointing it out. Ev is too modest, in addition to the rest. It was a lovely interview.
