Jazmen Moore MAT ’15, a doctoral candidate at the University of Washington, was recently named among the scholars for the 2022 cohort of the National Academy of Education/Spencer Foundation Dissertation Fellowship Program.

This fellowship program annually supports early-career scholars who are engaging in “critical areas of education research.” In addition to professional development and networking activities, the scholars receive $70,000 in support to fund their research proposals.

After earning her undergraduate degree from Michigan State University, Jazmen went on to earn an MA in Teaching from Dominican University. Jazmen currently researches Black girl refusals, consent-based learning, and chosen learning spaces at the University of Washington where she is in the College of Education’s Culturally Sustaining Education program.

Jazmen taught high school English in and around Chicago and coordinated a youth-based spoken word club. She now collaborates with Seattle-based organizations and educators as a Teaching Artist and has facilitated poetry workshops with students from elementary through undergraduate classes, as well as intergenerational community groups.
