JULIETA ACOSTA CAMPOS
I am joining the lab with a Bachelor's degree in Psychology. I am interested in children's behavior and development. I am curious to learn more about how attachment theory and family dynamics affect the way children relate with others. I am also eager to understand children's learning processes, particularly with regards to language and reading.

As an insatiable reader and creative writing enthusiast, the Literacy Lab has become my haven. Finding innovative ways to revolutionize the Language Arts curriculum is at the heart of my research interests. My ultimate goal is to support teachers in creating a classroom culture that promotes a “literacy is for life” message. One, in which students’ motivation to read thrives by engaging with culturally-relevant texts. After all, learning is more meaningful when it helps students better adapt to their changing environment.
For many years now, I’ve used books as my passport to different worlds. After completing my undergraduate degree in Concordia’s ECEE department, the literacy lab was truly a perfect fit for me. I found myself surrounded by people who also used books as their passports and were willing to share their experiences with me. My research interests vary but I am primarily interested in investigating the relationship between teachers’ reading habits and their teaching practices. In my free time, I love seeing my friends, trying different restaurants around Montreal, and indulging in a good romance book!
