Muslim American Teacher Survey


Research Participants Wanted

Reclaiming ME, a Muslim Educators Research Collective, is conducting the first national study of Muslim American teachers.  


Are you a Muslim American teacher? Do you know a Muslim American teacher? 


  We are looking for folks who: 

  • self-identify as Muslim (with varying degrees of religiosity or who identify with Muslim as a cultural category)

  • represent any racial or ethnic background

  • teach in public K-12 schools in the U.S. 

  • are adults over 18 years of age who can provide consent

  • would be willing to complete a 15-20 minute online survey


Participants are invited to complete a 15-20 minute survey. They will be asked to answer questions about their own experiences as teachers. 

We are raffling off two iPads and all participants who complete the survey are eligible to enter the raffle.

Questions, please contact:


This study has been approved by Montclair State University’s Institutional Review Board IRB-FY17-18-983


Please use the QR Code to access the survey.

Author of Troublemakers: Lessons in Freedom from Young Children at School

with DJ Justis 

and featuring Poet Florence Faison


Thursday, February 24 at 6:00 p.m. EST via Zoom



If classroom management is a curriculum – a series of lessons students learn from us – this talk invites us to ask: what do we teach now through our classroom management, and what we might want to teach instead? We will consider the troubling relationships between traditional classroom management approaches and carcerality, and begin to wonder how intentionally shifting our models of power and authority in the classroom might instead support the teaching and learning of freedom. By seeing our troublemakers as a resource to leverage instead of a problem to solve, this talk invites us to imagine classrooms as a space in which we might practice the world we want by rejecting disposability in favor of the struggle for love, justice, care, and healing. Purchase the book here.


This event is free and open to the public. ASL interpretation and live transcription will be provided.


The Transformative Education Network (TEN) at Montclair State University prepares, supports and develops teachers who teach toward antiracism and social justice. A part of TEN, the Critical Urban Education (CUE) Speaker Series is a bi-annual event bringing leading national scholars to Montclair State University. CUE provides a forum to develop attendees’ racial and political analysis through a series of lectures and workshops focused on social and cultural issues influencing urban schools and communities.
