My teaching, research, and service activities have an interdisciplinary focus grounded in Bronfenbrenner’s ecological model. My assignment is in child development/early childhood education within the department. My area of child development and early childhood education bridges the gap between families and schools (i.e., child care, preschool programs, Kindergarten). I work with faculty in multiple programs to prepare students to work with diverse children from birth to age eight.
Areas of Expertise:
Children's play, specifically the reduction of recess and outdoor time on children's development
