Teaching that Breaks Your Heart: Reflections on the Soul Wounds of a First-Year Latina Teacher
Carrillo, Juan F.
Harvard Educational Review, v80 n1 p74-81 Spr 2010
In this powerful essay, Juan F. Carrillo, a teacher educator in Austin, Texas, reflects on an encounter with a first-year Latina teacher, Christina, who has decided to leave the profession. Despite successfully learning and applying critical pedagogy, Christina finds herself isolated and frustrated, stuck between a societal push for standardized success and her own desire to nurture transformation among her students. In listening to Christina's experiences, Carrillo grapples with his own responsibilities as a teacher educator. (Contains 1 note.)
