African American New Teachers' Critical Stories: Learning to Teach, Becoming Certified, and Teaching
Beeler, Lichelle; Hayes, Christina; Lewis, Felicia; Russell, Alicia; Moss, Glenda
Mid-Western Educational Researcher, v17 n4 p19-26 Fall 2004
Four African American teacher-researcher-participants contributed to this self-reflective autobiographical, narrative analysis of learning to teach, becoming certified, and teaching. Each participant reflected on her educational stories of experience, as all four were educated on White university campuses and transitioned to teaching in predominantly African American teaching settings. The primary question this paper addresses is: What can be learned from African American teachers' stories of experience about recruiting and maintaining African Americans in the field of education?
