Background Information

Introductory Biography: Linda Scott DeRosier___________________________________________________ Linda Scott DeRosier was born in the upper room of her grandmother's log house at Boons Camp, Kentucky and spent the first twenty years of her life in Eastern Kentucky. She received her BS degree from Pikeville College at age twenty and went on to complete a cross-disciplinary doctorate (Ph.D.) in philosophy, education, and psychology at the University of Kentucky. She also did graduate work at Union College and holds a master's degree from Eastern Kentucky University and one from Harvard University. Dr. DeRosier has studied, visited, or lectured in all fifty states and more than fifty countries. Her major areas of interest are issues of gender, class, and culture (particularly Appalachian, African American, and Native American), family relationships, and teaching in the multicultural classroom. She has done mediation, counseling, and consulting with ministerial associations, psychiatric centers, school systems (ranging from elementary through graduate school) and the Social Security Administration and has taught at nine different colleges and universities; tenured at the last four. Dr. DeRosier’s administrative experience includes five years as Director of the Research Center for Education and Psychology at Kentucky State University; she was also the first Director of the Center for Appalachian Studies at East Tennessee State University. During her eight years at Albertson College, Dr. DeRosier conducted workshops in teaching to diversity for the Canyon County School System and the Migrant Center in Idaho. Since August 1988, Dr. DeRosier has been Professor of Psychology at Rocky Mountain College in Billings, Montana, where she served for four years as co-director of a grant to study teaching and learning styles at RMC and three tribal colleges in Montana and as Co-Chair of the RMC Faculty Diversity Committee. She is the former editor of the Southeastern Women's Studies Newsletter and is the author of two memoirs Creeker: A Woman’s Journey (1999) and Songs of Life and Grace (2003). Creeker received positive reviews from more than 50 publications, was chosen as finalist for the Appalachian Writers' Association Book of the Year (2000), received Ace Weekly's "Best Book By A Kentuckian Award” (2000), has been used in more than 25 university classes (2000-2006), and was Freshman book of the year at the University of Kentucky (2003-2004). Songs of Life and Grace was #1 on the Booksense 76 top ten picks for Fall 2003 and was chosen as the Appalachian Writers' Association Non-fiction Book of the Year (2004). Dr. DeRosier’s work has been anthologized in several publications and in November 2003, she won the Thomas D. Clark Award for Literary Excellence for her contribution to Kentucky Literature. She received a Ragdale Foundation Writing Residency Fellowship (2000), served as Writer-in-Residence at Union College (2001), Pikeville College (2002) and the University of Mary (2004-2005). For more than thirty years she has taught psychology at colleges or universities in Kentucky, Tennessee, Virginia, Idaho, Massachusetts, North Dakota, and Montana. She is the author of the texts Understanding Psychology (2004) and Workbook to accompany Understanding Psychology (2005). Dr. DeRosier is professor of psychology at Rocky Mountain College in Billings, Montana. Linda Scott DeRosier says her greatest achievement is that, after all those years of teaching psychology, she can now have a case of “nerves” in almost any state in the U.S. and be attended by a therapist who is a former student. She lives in Billings, Montana with her husband, Arthur, and Chow dog Farley, who protects her from killer rabbits, carriers of mail and newspapers, but not much else
