A Nontraditional Teacher's Experience after Student Teaching: Implications for Early Childhood Teacher Education
Garavuso, Vicki
Journal of Early Childhood Teacher Education, v28 n4 p393-410 Oct 2007
Introducing critical pedagogies into undergraduate early childhood teacher education programs may enable working class teachers who work with working class children to better examine assumptions of developmentally and culturally appropriate practices. This study focuses on a Latino assistant teacher who, after having returned from a semester of student teaching, attempted to cultivate an ethos of professional interaction among his peers. His ability to name, challenge and ultimately reject inappropriate ideologies and practices (Bartolom, 2004) are coupled with his concern for his children and his community. Illustrating Dahlberg, Moss, and Pence's definitions of "quality" and "meaning making," (2001) this study also considers ways in which administrators and teacher educators can respond to and support teachers who return to their jobs after their student-teaching experiences.
