Throughout the inquiry, I explore how my beliefs and values infused my lived-experiences and ultimately influences my constructivist, humanist, and ultimately my holistic teaching and learning practice which as times disrupts the status quo. I have written a collection of narratives which embodied my identity as an unintelligent student/learner, a teacher/learner, an experiential learner, a tenacious participant, and a change agent to name a few. As I unpack my stories and hermeneutically reconstruct their intent, I question their meaning as I explore how I can improve my teaching and learning practice and potentially effect positive change when instructing beginning teacher candidates at a Faculty of Education.
