Mariner High School, Everett, Washington
Rosen Publishing awarded one year of free access to Teen Health & Wellness to a lucky winner at the American Association of School Librarians (AASL) annual conference in October. We are pleased to announce that our winner is Peggy Nystrom, Librarian, Mariner High School, Everett, WA.
Peggy is thrilled to make this important resource available to her teens, saying: "I am so excited to be the lucky winner of a one-year subscription to Rosen Publishing's Teen Health & Wellness database! My staff is equally enthusiastic. When I notified them, several responded that they were eager to use this wonderful resource with their students. A biology teacher said that the site was great--she was looking for resources for a biology unit on MRSA, and that was the first topic she saw when she accessed the site. Our home and family living teachers told me that it would be a great resource for their study of everything from family life to nutrition to psychology. Some health and physical education teachers will use it as a first site for students to access when looking for information for their research papers. Thank you again, from me and from my staff, for this very useful gift."
