Revisiting the Teachers' Lounge: Reflections on Emotional Experience and Teacher Identity
Shapiro, Shawna
Teaching and Teacher Education: An International Journal of Research and Studies, v26 n3 p616-621 Apr 2010
This essay explores the relationship between emotion and teacher identity, using a framework of personal experience and published research from a variety of disciplines. The author argues that an increased awareness of emotional experience serves not only to increase rapport among educators, but also to counteract the persistent dehumanization of the teaching profession in our current sociopolitical context. She highlights the work of other educational scholars to suggest various means by which this awareness can be cultivated in research and teaching practice.
