Biography

Cree Taylor is the mother of four beautiful children, a high school track & field coach, and a Senior Lecturer in the English Department at Utah State University. She also serves as the Associate Dean for Inclusive Excellence & Belonging in the College of Humanities and Social Sciences at USU. Her classroom is informed by Social Constructivism, Critical Race Theory, Feminism, Black Feminist Thought, and Pedagogies of Care. She works to employ an Engaged Pedagogy and to establish her classroom as a brave space where students feel empowered to share their own perspectives and have those perspectives challenged in respectful and meaningful ways. Her favorite part about working with students is engaging with them on controversial topics and texts. She loves hearing student perspectives and ideas during classroom dialogues and discussions and reading about what they are learning in their writing. Cree teaches First Year Composition (ENGL 2010 and 1010) and Race and Ethnicity in the United States (ENGL 2640).
