Teachers' Memories and Their Relevance Today
McCaw, Liz
Contemporary Issues in Early Childhood, v7 n3 p290-291 2006
The author suggests that the connection between teachers' early memories and the way they conceptualize their work is likely to be enormously important in the long run. Anne Lindbergh is one of the author's literary heroes. For years the author has been enchanted by Anne's ability to describe commonplace events in the most profound ways. In a way, she has embraced Lindbergh's musings as her own mantra in working with children. She understands that her views about how children learn and the research supporting those views determine her effectiveness in teaching. They shape the goals she sets, how she defines her role in helping children achieve those goals, her interactions with children, and her teaching practice. Much of her framework evolved from not only her epistemology, but also her memories.
