Dr. Kahdeidra Monét Martin received her Ph.D. in Urban Education at The Graduate Center of the City University of New York in June 2021. Her dissertation is entitled, "Counterstories of Black High School Students and Graduates of NYC Independent Schools: A Narrative Case Study." To support her research, Dr. Martin was awarded a Doctoral Student Research grant from the Ph.D. Program in Urban Education, a travel award from Division K of the American Education Research Association, and a Dean K. Harrison Dissertation Fellowship. Her research foci primarily orbit around adolescent literacy, the spectrum of urban education, social justice pedagogies, sociolinguistics, intersectionality theory, racial literacy,  discourse analysis, and qualitative inquiry. In recognition of her commitment to pedagogical excellence, she was one of three graduate student recipients of the 2020 Teaching Award from The Graduate Center.


Dr. Martin previously earned a Certificate in Interactive Technology & Pedagogy from the Graduate Center, and she holds a Master of Science in Education degree, Teaching Urban Adolescents with Disabilities, from Long Island University and a Bachelor’s degree in African & African American Studies with a minor in Linguistics from Stanford University. Dr. Martin is experienced in facilitating professional learning sessions in culturally relevant teaching, multimodal & game-based learning, and critical conversations on power and privilege. In 2020, she co-authored a book on the latter topic, Classroom Talk for Social Change: Critical Conversations in English Language Arts (Teachers College Press, 2020), which received a 2021 Divergent Book Award for Excellence in 21st Century Literacies Research.

Currently, Dr. Martin serves as a Postdoctoral Scholar of Education at the Stanford Graduate School of Education, where she completed federal work study as a undergraduate student, under the mentorship of Dr. Anne Harper Charity Hudley.
