Dr. Cleveland Hayes began his professional career as a middle school and high school science teacher in Salt Lake City, Utah. Dr. Hayes completed his PHD at the University of Utah, Salt Lake City Utah with an emphasis on History of Black education, Critical Race Theory in Education, Sociology of Education, and Whiteness Theory. These continue to be his research interest. Central to Hayes’ research is antiracist pedagogies to encourage students to analyze educational issues of knowledge and power as related to racial/ethnic identity, gender, socio-economic class, and sexual orientation. These pedagogies push students and me to critically reflect on our cultural assumptions, practices, and conceptions of privilege and meritocracy. Dr. Hayes’ passion centers on making a difference in the everyday lives of marginalized and oppressed youth through relevant research that will benefit the education and socialization of students who are ethnic minorities, immigrants, and/or Second Language Learners. I incorporate these pedagogies into the following graduate and undergraduate courses: Educ. 390, Science for Elementary Teachers and Educ. 476, Teaching in the Content Single Subject.
