Saundra K. Ciccarelli is a professor at Gulf Coast Community College in Panama City, Florida. She received her doctorate in development psychology from the George Peabody College of Vanderbilt University, Nashville Tennessee. She is a member of Division 2 of the American Psychological Association. Ciccarelli was originally interested in a career as a researcher in language and intelligence development in developmentally delayed children and adolescents, and had publications in the American Journal of Mental Deficiency while still at Peabody. However, she discovered a love of teaching early on in her career. This led Ciccarelli to the position at Gulf Coast Community College, where she has been teaching introductory psychology for over 20 years. Her students love her enthusiasm for the field of psychology and the many anecdotes and examples she uses to bring psychology to life for them. While this is her first textbook, she has authored numerous ancillary materials for several different introductory psychology texts.
