Acknowledgment

If you ever see a turtle on a fencepost, you know he did not get there without some help. This proverb describes how I made it to this point in my life and career. My first thoughts of appreciation go to God for the means and the ability to accomplish the things that I have. Without the blessings of the means, the ability, and the support of the following people and many others, none of this would have been possible. I next want to acknowledge my parents, Martha and Barry, for their relentless efforts to guide me in the direction of what they always knew was best. They instilled in my brother and I the belief that we could accomplish anything we wanted to and provided the support along the way that has allowed us to find our way to success in our chosen fields. I would like to most importantly thank my wife, Sheena, and my three daughters, Alli, Kennedie, and Millie, for their amazing patience and support throughout this journey. Not once did they complain about the sacrifices they made for me to make this study a reality. Their adjustments to life around this project are a testament of their love and support.

Acknowledgments
As both an educator and a student, completing this dissertation has been a challenging and rewarding endeavor. I am grateful to the National Association of Elementary School Principals and Nova Southeastern University for affording me the opportunity to receive the 2007 scholar fellowship.
With profound gratitude, I acknowledge Dr. Patrick Chambers, who balanced setting a high benchmark for quality with encouragement and scholarly advice. In addition, I am thankful for the wonderful university faculty that provided me with an excellent foundation for research and new learning for my pursuit to become a better school leader. Each course was beneficial in providing best practices for writing the dissertation and for my professional growth; thus, it is my desire to reciprocate by investing in future school leaders.
Without the support of Dr. Robert Muller and the participants of the study, I could not have completed the applied dissertation. I appreciate Dr. Muller‘s approval to conduct the study in the target district, and I am thankful for the educators who contributed their insight and perceptions.
Most importantly, I acknowledge the support, patience, loving encouragement, and contributions of my family. They, too, sacrificed to help me reach this goal. Finally, I dedicate this dissertation to the memory of my great-grandmother, Lucy Callis, a pioneer woman and a classroom teacher for over 50 years. I am fortunate to have grown up with such a fine teacher to instill in me both a love of learning and a desire to contribute to the learning of others. She taught many lessons—from learning to read to developing faith that would later sustain me through life‘s challenges.

Acknowledgments
Tremendous affection and appreciation go to Dr. Carolyn S. Buckenmaier, my
dissertation chair, for her endless encouragement, wisdom, and teaching. Mitch Albom’s words from Tuesdays With Morrie describe Dr. Buckenmaier best: “The way you get meaning in your life is to devote yourself to others, devote yourself to your community around you, and devote yourself to creating something that gives you purpose and meaning.” Dr. Buckenmaier models the very best leadership qualities for her students and colleagues, in class and online, always adding a smile and a wonderful sense of humor. It has been an honor to have her as my professor and dissertation chair. Thank you also to Dr. John S. Reynolds for serving as my reader.
Along the way, my life has been blessed with inspiring leaders. Gratitude goes to Dr. Janet I. Greenwood for generously sharing her time and knowledge and for providing me with a fascinating setting for my research. Hugs go to Ellen Welsh and Jean Carnes, my dear friends and doctoral comrades. I look forward to sharing two more bottles of champagne soon. Special thanks go to Martha W. Nelson, Mary B. Wall, Dr. Herb Karl, Dr. Robert Dressler, Dr. Joyce B. Swarzman, Dr. Kimberly Campbell, Dr. Karolyn J. Snyder, and a man whose very smile was the “wind beneath my wings,” Dr. Robert H. Anderson. Thank you to Mallory Hussin for being a superb researcher and to Dr. Dana Madrid for always setting the pace in this long and arduous doctoral race to the finish. This most enlightening journey through my master’s and doctoral programs has been possible only because of the unconditional love and sacrifices of my wonderful husband, Peter, and my three darling children, Jillian, Bronwyn, and Clark. I love you with all my heart and promise to do my best to continue to make you proud.

There is no greater concern for a society than the safeguarding of their young.
Children have a right to be safe at home, in school, and at play. The safety of our children, while in the care of public schools throughout the nation, is a right and not a privilege. When that right is violated for one child, it is violation felt by everyone in the school, community, state, and throughout the nation.
Dr. Robert Watson, former FBI agent and retired superintendent of schools, will always be appreciated for his insights concerning school safety and his model of planning, training, and implementation of a safe school awareness process. Schools and communities that were fortunate enough to seek his advice and follow his lead, have students in their schools today who are safer as the result of that collaboration. I am forever grateful for his advise and counsel as I performed my school safety responsibilities and just as importantly, as I move forward with my doctoral studies.
I am forever indebted to my wonderful wife, Laura. Without her constant encouragement and support I would not have begun the journey and, without a doubt could have never completed the journey. She is equally as concerned about the children in our schools. I am overwhelmed by her professional commitment and personal dedication to include each child in the classroom, regardless of his or her intellectual ability or physical challenge. Her devotion to the children at school and unwavering support for my pursuit of an educational experience that will support the children is self- less and inspiring. It is a journey worthy of the effort. For that, I will always be grateful.
