Dr. DeMarie earned a Ph.D. in Developmental Psychology from the University of Florida. She researches children’s memory development, with emphasis on the strategies children use for learning new information. She also uses photography with preschool and elementary school children as a way to reveal their school experiences through their own eyes.
From 2007 to 2009, Dr. DeMarie was a Fulbright Scholar at the University of Limpopo, a historically Black university located in the northern, rural part of South Africa. There she co-created a child care center that currently enrolls 52 children between ages 2 and 6. She was the Program Coordinator for Educational Psychology from 2006-2012 and has conducted teacher professional development in South Africa, India, and Jamaica.
