Martreece Watson is an Assistant Professor in the Department of English. She holds a Ph.D. in Education from The Ohio State University. Her recent publication collaboration focus is on the role of literacy on the postsecondary opportunities of students 
with high incidence disabilities. 


Her doctoral research focused on the language and literacy practices of Black d/Deaf high school students who were on track to graduate with their high school diploma.  The research also delved into the current challenges faced by culturally, linguistically diverse students and their academic needs with a focus on altering the current deficit narrative framing deaf education. Co-constructed conversations of achieving Black d/Deaf high school students’ experiences allowed their perceptions to be heard.

 

She enjoys teaching courses in English language studies, African American literature, adolescent literature and literary studies along with teaching interdisciplinary courses, including "Black d/Deaf Studies: Comparing Multicultural Perspectives."

In 2018, with the support of the Department of English, Dr. Watson implemented the Academic Learning Lab for Student Training, Achievement, and Readiness (ALLSTAR) to support the academic, social and mentoring needs of students of color.

As an avid sports fan, on the weekends, you can find her cheering for her Bison, beloved Buckeyes or Dallas Cowboys.
