Bringing Muslim Educators Together

If you’re a certified educator in K-12 or teaching in higher education in Houston, and happen to be Muslim – we’d love to hear from you!

We’re working towards creating a professional association for Muslim educators to connect with one another, enhance their careers, advocate for areas of mutual interest, and provide resources for our community.

What does this mean?

  1. Through this association, you’ll have the opportunity to connect with and learn from Muslim educators in different stages of their careers from all over the city.
  2. We’ll be able to work together to advocate for issues that will benefit our children in the school system.
  3. Together, if you have the time, you’ll be able to leverage your knowledge and skillset to benefit the larger community through workshops, webinars, and Q&A’s.

To be clear, this is not a union – it’s a professional association for Muslim educators to come together to benefit themselves and others.

If you’re interested, please fill out the form and we’ll be in touch through email with more information.

Questions? Please email and we’ll get back to you right away.

Why is Minaret Foundation taking this on? Our mission is to enhance the multi-faith and civic engagement of the Muslim community, and we can only accomplish that if we’re able to collect our very segmented community.

This association is just one project amongst many that we are working on such as the Houston Imam’s Association, Houston Halal Restaurant Association, and others, to bring our community together for the common good.

Our Steering Committee:

  • Aneela Farooq – Vice-Principal in Fort Bend ISD
  • Arshia Memon – Teacher in Fort Bend ISD
  • Fizza Butt – Counselor in Aldine ISD, Board Member at IEIT, and Education Coordinator for An-Nisa
