    Thank you Dr. Lewis for your dedication to the field. I appreciate your comment on critical thinking. Children feel so empowered when you allow them to make choices, and try skills for themselves. I love the excitement in their voices when they exclaimed, "I did it!" Keep up the great work. I look forward to hearing more from you.
