DOUBLE TAP TO ZOOM WITH PHONE OR TABLET Acknowledgments No book would be complete without specific mention of the special and talented people who helped shape it. I want to thank a multitude of people for helping to make this book possible. I conceived the idea for this book while I was collecting data for my master’s degree at Pacific Oaks College in Pasadena, California, in 1992. Some of the citations in this edition of Celebrate! refer to interviews I conducted for my unpublished master’s thesis that year. My deepest thanks to the following edu-cators, whose willingness to be interviewed and generosity with information helped to make this book what it is: Cecelia Alvarado ReGena Booze Phyllis Brady Sharon Cronin Louise Derman-Sparks Cory Gann Cheryl Greer-Jarman Eric J. Hoffman Roberta Hunter Katie Kissinger Norma Quan Ong Deborah Owens Patricia G. Ramsey B. J. Richards Bill Sparks Kim Sakamoto Steidl Kay Taus Stacey York COPYRIGHTED MATERIAL xvii
