I hope this issue of Brandeis Magazine finds you well. I write this while at the courthouse for jury duty — first time called! — thinking about Justice Brandeis and “Mad Men.” As always, please do share news of life’s moments with fellow alumni. Having attended the last two Reunions, I know it’s truly a pleasure to learn what people are doing, often sparking new connections and some good laughs. On a personal note, I was promoted to full professor of early childhood education at Lesley University. My latest book, “Successful Centers,” provides teachers with developmentally appropriate classroom activities that create play-based opportunities for children and families in school and at home.
