Voice of the Teacher

This session will deal with what is loosely within the method of narrative inquiry. Teachers are often the missing voice in education. Telling our own stories is a powerful way to conduct or add to any research because it answers the question, "Why are you asking these particular questions." Using aspects drawn from feminist standpoint theory, ways to tell one’s own story in, or as part of another form of, academic research will be discussed.
