TJE Graduate Student Researcher
School of Education, UC Davis
Adam Musser [he/him/his] is a doctoral student in the School of Education at the University of California, Davis, with an emphasis in Language, Literacy, & Culture. Adam is committed to humanizing research methods that respond to the questions which disenfranchised and dispossessed communities want to answer. Within teacher education, he asks teachers to center the brilliance and curiosities of youth and to resist educational systems of racialized oppression. Before graduate school, Adam was a high school English teacher in Cleveland, a middle school Humanities teacher in Seattle, and a language/literacy teacher in the Belize Central Prison. He sees the work of TJE as critical to the struggle for liberation, justice, and joy.
