This unique and compelling collection of stories emphasizes the challenges and joys of teaching that inspire teachers to commit themselves to a profession that is adventurous, generous, and nurturing. It is the only book of its kind to combine highlights and the analysis of stories written by skilled teachers with a discussion of the history of teaching narratives. The book contains chapters on the history of teaching narratives and the methods used to entice teachers to write their own stories of teaching. This inspires teachers to personalize their own teaching role, to see their own evolution, and to reflect on their experiences and what they have learned. Narratives by Kozol, Rose, Tompkins, and Paley are analyzed and showcased to familiarize readers with the writings of several experts in the field. For use at in-service teacher seminars, or for anyone considering a career in the field of education.
