    hello, Craig Wiesner! It was a pleasure to meet you yesterday at the T4SJ conference. As you suggested, this issue on restorative justice does look very interesting to me. I would be very appreciative if you could forward it to me.

    It looks like you do excellent work at Reach and Teach. I look forward to reviewing your catalog. Thanks so much for connecting with me yesterday.

    With gratitude and the very best wishes,

    Helen
