She earned her Master’s degree at Peabody College of Vanderbilt and her doctorate in Reading and Human Development from the Harvard Graduate School of Education.

Dr. Moats spent four years as site director of the NICHD Early Interventions Project in Washington, DC.  This longitudinal, large-scale project was conducted through the University of Texas, Houston under the direction of Barbara Foorman.
