After I earned my PhD, I got a job as an educational evaluator for a large, urban school district, because research and evaluation were so much fun. That job really helped me strengthen my skills, confidence and values as a researcher; enough to want to leave the position and consult in research on my own. So my specialty within education psychology is research. I do all parts of the research process, such as creating and validating surveys, designing and delivering studies, along with data analysis and intervention. My clients vary in terms of their needs, from parts to the gestalt of the research study process. My recent client topics included wellness, leadership and social media use.

In lucid and jargon-free prose, the text explains and illustrates educational psychology's practical relevance for teachers and learners. The new edition continues to emphasize the applications of research on child development, on learning and cognition, on motivation, and on instruction and assessment. At the same time the text has long been counted on for its state of the art presentation of the field of educational psychology, and this edition continues that tradition with new and expanded coverage of import topics like the brain and neuroscience, the impact of technology on the lives and learning of students, and student diversity.
This was the ideal course for me as it allowed me to combine my background in learning and education with my passion for psychology and working with children. I gained an enormous amount of confidence via the variety of placements and I also learned a great deal from working alongside the academics in the course.
