My greatest debt is to my dissertation committee who collectively provided
me with hope, encouragement, and intellectual stimulus to make this acknowledge-
ment possible. A special acknowledgment is due to professors Steven Tipps and
Frances van Tassell, whose wisdom, suggestions, and belief in my abilities, coupled
with their drive for excellence, provided an environment of challenge and creativity.
With deepest gratitude:
to the sacrifices of my staff at Johnson Elementary School and, in particular,
my assistant, Linda Santos, whose patience and encouragement has been my support
throughout this process.
to the skeptics who, by placing barriers before me, made me more determined
and tenacious in my pursuit.
to the supporters of my pursuit, with special gratitude to my friends, editor,
and family who were always willing to listen and provide encouragement throughout
this arduous process.
to Lieutenant Thomas K. Dixon who is not only my son, but my best friend
and endless source of inspiration.
to my mother, Alma P. Thomas, and my father, Vernon Thomas, who have
both passed on but were my guardian angels throughout this challenging process.
Finally, to my guiding Spirit, my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ who, as He
promised, never left me alone.
Here’s what’s next.
