Acknowledgments are due to all those whose inspiration, encouragement, and feedback carried me through the process of writing this book. Thank you to my friends, mentors, and guides at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University--David Parks, Ph.D., Jerome Niles, Ed.D., Dianne Yardley, Ph.D., Patricia Kelly, Ed.D., as well as Carol Whittaker, Ed.D., director of Pupil Personnel Services with Roanoke County Schools, and Kay Longley, Ed.D., psychologist with Botetourt County Schools.

I appreciate the tireless efforts of those who reviewed and edited my book chapter by chapter, including Joan Dowdy, Lauren Beck, Sybil Taylor, Brenda East, Dayl Graves, and my dear friend, Pat Watson. Special thanks to my sister, Gail Higgins-Brush, N.P., for all of her help and for always being there for me, and to my daughter-in-law, Hendree Jones, Ph.D., researcher and instructor at Johns Hopkins University, for technical and moral support.

I especially want to thank my family for supporting and lovingly putting up with me during my research and writing. My children, Erik, Laurien, Carrie, and Kristi, have been my best teachers on my journey through life. My mother, Beatrice Ingerling, has always encouraged me to pursue my dreams. Last, but far from least, I want to express my appreciation to my husband, John Lensch, for his willingness to read endless drafts, give helpful suggestions, and patiently stand by me.

The writing of this book was truly a group effort and one that would have been difficult if not impossible to have done without the support and encouragement of others. Thank you all.
