Dear Colleagues:
Much thanks to Ana and all the panelists and presenters at AERA. Both the CHAT symposium, presentations, and business meeting were outstanding venues to explore new ideas, receive support from esteemed mentors, and validate our common efforts. The nurturing that was exhibited toward myself and other novice researchers was especially appreciated.

I once read Luria commented that Vygotsky was not only a genius, but one of the most positive, interpersonal individuals he had ever met. How refreshing that his legacy continues today. My experience has been that such support and dialogue is devoid from the vast majority of academic circles. Thanks again to all who shared their talent, expertise, and commitment to each other and the field as a whole.
