My Story

Becoming Teacherly is a phrase I discovered one day while attempting to describe what was happening in my life through my research.  I hope this is something that is happening in all of our lives, as educators.  Whether you're a grad student or a veteran teacher, I believe in one way or another, we are all becoming teacherly.  

My students give me life.  As they grow, I grow.  They prove to me everyday that “there are neither utter ignoramuses nor perfect sages; there are only people who are attempting together, to learn more than they know” (Friere, 1970, p. 90).  I love seeing them change and adapt and compose.  They are how I become more teacherly each day.  

Becoming Teacherly is a place for me to share who I am beyond my cover letter and resume.  While those documents are part of who I am, they also do not clearly describe me to anyone who reads them. 

If you want to know who I am, watch my teachers.
