MDR School of Thought Newsletter
MARCH 2, 2018

Reflecting on the past as well as what lies ahead are two themes this week. Anne Wujcik shares her reflections on her fascinating career and warm memories.

In other news, we thought we’d get you thinking about the nature of education for the littlest learners and the teachers who impart their wisdom on these learners. There’s always new resources and tools to support this learning with educational technology, so we’ve also provided some inspiration for marketing these tools as well.

Check out our events section to see what's coming your way this month!

One of the oldest adages among anglers is to fish where the fish are. But fishermen need to be ready to react when fish take to different waters.
