Why you are going to love my class

Our classes in Developmental Psychology are very small so we get to know each other and establish personal relationships. Plus, I wrote one of the textbooks we use, but I don't lecture for the entire class.

Instead, we watch feature films and videos together, which serve much better to illustrate child development. Such multimedia generates a lot of interaction in class.

Great things for you at UDM
Learning about child development causes you to reflect on how you were raised and often this will change how you raise your own children. Psychology is about individuals and families, so you're learning about yourself, too. You may find yourself very interested in your own developmental process.
Great things in store after UDM
After taking a class with me, you will have a greater sensitivity and respect for children.
My favorite part about teaching you is
I enjoy teaching you because of your curiosity about children and families. We often share our life stories in class. Students are amazed that I have been married almost 40 years. In general, you will learn about families and development, which is relevant to your own lives.
