JEANNE ELLIS ORMROD

received her A.B. in psychology from Brown University and her M.S. and Ph.D. in educational psychology from The Pennsylvania State University. She earned licensure in school psychology through postdoctoral work at Temple University and the University of Colorado at Boulder and has worked as a middle school geography teacher and school psychologist. She was Professor of Educational Psychology at the University of Northern Colorado until 1998 and is currently Professor Emerita in UNC’s School of Psychological Sciences.

She has published numerous research articles on cognition and memory, cognitive development, and giftedness, but she is probably best known for this textbook and four others: Educational Psychology: Developing Learners (now in its eighth edition); Human Learning (now in its sixth edition); Child Development and Education (co-authored with Teresa McDevitt, now in its fifth edition); and Practical Research (co-authored with Paul Leedy, now in its tenth edition). She has also recently authored Our Minds, Our Memories: Enhancing Thinking and Learning at All Ages, which introduces principles of learning and cognition to practitioners in a variety of helping professions, as well as to nonpractitioners who simply want to enhance the quality of their own lives.

After raising three children (two of whom have become teachers themselves), she now lives in New Hampshire with her husband Richard. Within the past few years she has had the good fortune to visit schools in diverse cultural settings, including Rwanda, Tanzania, Thailand, and Peru’s Amazon region.
