I have a BS in Psychology from Roosevelt University in Chicago and MS and PhD degrees in developmental psychology from Syracuse University. I have always been fascinated by the process of human development and am especially interested in theories of human development. This interest plays out in my writing at the moment by looking at the nature/nurture question and in my coursework and service by considering how our understanding of human development can help improve the quality of early childhood education.

Human Development and Identity; PreK-12 Curriculum and Instruction; Teacher Education
