Office: Nesbitt 5154, Gainesville
Areas of Expertise: Western Colonialist Educative Practice, De-/anti-colonial educative practice

Overview

Dr. Kelly Limes-Taylor Henderson is an assistant professor of the social foundations of education and is interested in the ways that Indigenous, Black, and Islamic knowledges resist and thrive in the West, despite dominant Western educative practice.

Before coming to the university, Dr. Henderson spent ten years as a high school literature and composition teacher, both in-person and online. She also parents five children who have schooled in traditional public and private settings and who have also unschooled. Dr. Henderson understands that these multiple roles in her life – learner and learned, professor and parent – have inherent importance individually and, combined, are invaluable to her teaching and research practice.
