Course Leader Bio

After starting in the classroom, I returned to school, and received my doctorate in education from The University of Massachusetts. I have spent the majority of my 40+ year career in academia as a professor of Developmental Psychology concentrating on progressive education, and social issues in children’s literature. I have taught at Goddard College, Smith College, Mount Holyoke College, and The University of Massachusetts.  Later in my career I received a master’s degree in mental health counseling and worked as a therapist for several years.
