More about Michelle:
Dr. Michelle Anthony has always been passionate about her work with families and children. After graduating with honors in Educational Studies from Brown University, she went on to get her Master’s in Child Studies and Teacher’s Certificate from Tufts University. She taught in Massachusetts and Rhode Island for five years, after which she got her PhD in Developmental Psychology from the University of California, Berkeley. Michelle has spent her entire professional life working hands-on with educators, children (both typical and developmentally-delayed), and families. She has worked in schools as both a teacher and a teacher-trainer, and has worked with parents as a developmental specialist and parenting workshop leader.
In addition, she is an award-winning writer and program developer who has consulted with organizations as well as the media. She has also co-authored several Scholastic children’s books, as well as two parenting titles with St. Martin’s Press. Her most recent book, Little Girls Can Be Mean: Fours Steps to Bully-proof Girls in the Early Grades is a parent’s and educator’s go-to guide for dealing with the growing issue of girl meanness in elementary school.
