Exit Narratives examines what constitutes good teaching and engaged learning and how to use this knowledge to support teachers in their efforts to create learning environments that encourage academic mastery and nourish students as social beings. The authors explore a range of issues: why they became teachers, their first years of teaching, what worked for them, the micropolitics of teacher interactions, becoming proficient teachers, as well as their last year of teaching and what they did next. These former teachers took a stand in their careers to create a better environment for both teaching and learning.

Review:

?a definite major contribution to our understanding of what makes great teachers and how to structure student centered classroom that excites and engages students and their parents in learning. By releasing teachers voices-willingness to break the silence ―- the text challenges and explodes the myth of the anti-intellectual teacher by the reader journeying with teachers way beyond the drab dribble of professional staff underdevelopment to becoming warrior intellectual in charge of their own destinies thus laying a foundation for student emulation. It also reveals teachers as life long learners and the insatiable thirst for knowledge... (Winthrop R. Holder, Social Studies teacher and author of Classroom Calypso: Giving Voice to the Voiceless)

...a definite major contribution to our understanding of what makes great teachers and how to structure student centered classroom that excites and engages students and their parents in learning.By releasing teachers voices-willingness to break the silence ―- the text challenges and explodes the myth of the anti-intellectual teacher by the reader journeying with teachers way beyond the drab dribble of professional staff underdevelopment to becoming warrior intellectual in charge of their own destinies thus laying a foundation for student emulation.

The teaching journey continues to be chronicled, and this new book takes a look at the journey through a different set of lenses. Often the beginning teacher and the key elements of learning to teach are the focus of publications about beginning to teach. Exit Narratives presents a different aspect of the teaching journey―retirement. In this publication, four retired teachers share their teaching journey with one another with an emphasis on the joys, missed opportunities, challenges, successes, and creation of a community of learners. In the first three chapters, readers meet Barbara, Elena, Jackquelynn, and Ursula as they share their common experiences as first-year teachers. They then continue to share―what worked, cautionary tales, and the final days of teaching, along with the first year of retirement. Exit Narratives is divided into ten chapters that discuss competent teachers, their teaching journeys, a conclusion, and reflections, plus an epilogue. Each chapter provides the reader with information about each teacher and her personal experiences on the professional teaching journey. Summing Up: Recommended. General readers, undergraduate students, graduate students, and practitioners.
