Prior to coming to Meredith this year, Dr. Morris taught in the Early Childhood Education program at the University of Oklahoma-Tulsa, and, as a graduate student, in George Mason University’s Psychology Department, in Towson University’s Early Childhood Education Master’s program, and as a Psychology adjunct for the Maricopa Community College system in Phoenix, Arizona. Her goal is for her students to gain a deep understanding of child development which they can then apply to the care and education of young children; this goal represents the culmination of a career that began in an early childhood classroom more than 30 years ago.
