In this research reflection, we develop a portrait of our engaged pedagogy for teaching educational foundations classes in teacher education. Our engaged pedagogy--based on autobiography and self-disclosure traditions-- emphasizes instructors and students' self-disclosure of lived experiences as being central to practical curriculum in teaching educational foundations. In developing this portrait of our teaching, we use topical narrative that provides a unique fit for studying practical curriculum and students' responses. After discussing topical narrative as research methodology, we identify narrative patterns that emerged in our study with preservice teachers: searching for and finding words, opening eyes in relation to broader issues, and reconsidering worldviews. In continuation, we discuss "disclosure on disclosure," which identifies benefits of working through autobiography and disclosure traditions alongside limits that emerge in practice. We conclude by emphasizing the importance of initiating a practical discussion on teaching foundations as a key area of professional activity in teacher education.
