Dr. Chelsea McCracken, Senior Research Analyst
Dr. Chelsea McCracken grew up in Maryland, where she attended high-quality public schools K-12. She studied French and math at St. Mary’s College of Maryland and went on to earn her PhD in linguistics from Rice University in 2012. Her first book, a reference grammar of an indigenous language of New Caledonia, is under contract with De Gruyter. Chelsea became involved in the homeschool reform movement as a result of the abuse and educational neglect experienced by her homeschooled family members. As an Assistant Professor of Interdisciplinary Arts & Sciences at Dixie State University, Chelsea instructs students in research methods and guides them in designing their own educational programs and assembling portfolios of their work. Chelsea lives in southern Utah with her spouse and their fur babies.
