From Narratives of Teaching: Conversations Toward Agency and Authenticity in Education, written by Sean Wiebe and Craig MacDonald, invites readers into an intimate conversation about the work life circumstances of teachers.
Drawing on the research about teacher worklife on Prince Edward Island, Wiebe and MacDonald contribute a distinct collaborative perspective to discussions about what it means to be a teacher in this time. Through a series of critical questions, they reveal the intricate ways the autonomy, authority, and accountability intertwine and manifest in the daily lives of teachers.
Professor Susan Walsh of Mount Saint Vincent University said, “Wiebe and MacDonald weave together a thoughtful, erudite, and evocative conversation about the complex and fluid spaces that teachers live between school and home.”
