Four decades of teaching at the preschool, elementary, high school, and university levels resulted in writing textbooks, consulting in schools, and conducting seminars in Hong Kong, Singapore, and Romania.

Twenty years of teaching human development to medical doctors in their psychiatry residency programs inspired her to found the Early Childhood Development Center, affiliated with the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center.
