Tensions within Teaching: An Autoethnography of an American Teacher
Tuura, Brianne Marie
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, Washington State University
This dissertation examines the personal transformation of an American teacher as she becomes aware of the social, political, and economic tensions that exist within the American school system and the affects these tensions have on her ability to teach. As the researcher becomes more aware of power structures surrounding her, the reader is enabled to view the personal, cognitive, and emotional transformation of the researcher. The exploration is executed through an evocative autoethnographic lens, providing a qualitative narrative of the personal paradigm shift.
