What can narratives do for us? In this response to Grimes' article, I endeavor to answer this question, considering the author's story as both a space for unpacking and the complex intersection of identity, teaching and learning and as an effort to name herself in the midst of such complexity. Specifically, I address the raced, gendered, classed nature of the relationships that Grimes' suggests facilitate science learning in her classroom, asking "What is gained or lost when students' success is attributed to such relationships?"
