*Muslim Identities among High School Students *

*in the South Asian Diaspora*

*Erum Jaffer*

*Director, South Asian Youth Action*

Drawing from experiences working at South Asian Youth Action (SAYA!) and
with volunteer work with the Ismaili Muslim Community, this session will
explore the intersectionality between the challenges of adolescent
development and expression of faith.  The workshop will introduce concepts
of cognitive development for adolescent in understanding aspects of faith,
particularly within Islam.

*Breaking the "Mold": The Teacher as Individual*

*Elma Rahman*

*Queens College Graduate, Secondary Education*

My experience in the education system suggests that some administrators may
have a "mold" that teachers should fit. But what happens when one is a
misfit for this mold due to his/her beliefs, culture, race and most of all,
individuality? And how does this, in turn, affect students? This workshop
will examine the issue of identity in the professional realm as we consider
Muslim teacher identities in the education system and work to become more
mindful of those that might be marginalized due to their backgrounds.
