As a researcher and professor in psychoeducation, I am interested in the preschool predictors of later school adaptation. Specifically, I focus on the ways mothers prepare their children in several areas (cognitive, emotional, behavioral) for a successful integration into the school environment. My work includes the study of maternal scaffolding within different contexts, including joint reading, as well as the affective quality of the mother-child relationship. More recently, I have also developed an interest in the quality of teacher-child relationships.

The language and culture of my heritage is passed on to me orally. it's a different way off learning than how I am taught at school. How do I keep my traditional culture alive while learning to read and being immersed in the majority culture?

Reading is the core of learning and staying in school . improving reading skills with young Aboriginal children can open up the doors to future prospects.
