From the desk of Bill Storm:


Last week I happened to catch this episode of TED Radio Hour on the topic of The Meaning of Work. While the TED Talk itself is really good (second link, 15”), the radio program version (first link, 12”) is actually more revelatory to our work here in DJUSD with Margaret Heffernan’s discussion of child development, mental health and community culture.
