Dr. Annemarie Hindman is a Professor of Early Childhood Education and Educational Psychology at Temple University, and she is affiliated through a courtesy appointment with the Department of Psychology. She coordinates the Early and Elementary Teacher Education program (PreK-4th grade certification) at Temple, and she is the director of the Center for Assessment, Evaluation, and Education Policy Analysis. She has authored more than 75 publications and has served as PI or Co-PI on more than $10 million dollars in grant-funded projects. Dr. Hindman studies how young children build foundational skills, including language, literacy, and social competence, throughout the first years of life and the transition to formal schooling. Much of her work focuses on communities in economic poverty with highly ethnically and linguistically diverse populations. Her work is characterized by three strands: professional development interventions for pre- and in-service teachers; classroom-aligned family interventions; and program evaluation for education-focused, community-based organizations serving children, families, and educators in high-need communities. Dr. Hindman earned a bachelor’s degree in history from Yale University, as well as a master’s degree in developmental psychology and a Ph.D. in education and psychology from the University of Michigan.
