Abstract

Auto-ethnographic and narrative inquiry provides opportunities for teachers to reflect the personal with a curriculum dominated identity; a human kind of offering, with research as a living guide to revelation. The relative habitat of self in the context of teaching is a topic still under review, especially as it applies to the storying of self in a collective, professional life-world and the artefacts and icons of systems. I use auto-tales and biography combined with narrative inquiry as literary devices to explore teaching as a lived experience with a human map connected to others. Storying serves as an empathetic bridge to development and invites reflexive practice as we recollect our lives in the context of experience. I explore the medium of poly-vocal writing to evoke and discuss identity among the nature of teaching, calling on crucial literature as referent voices. I explore the medium of poly-vocal writing to evoke and discuss identity among the overt and covert nature of teaching, calling on crucial literature as referent voices.
