This important book is the result of an in-depth inquiry into the lives and work of six outstanding preschool teachers. Through a creative, original combination of interviews, letters, vignettes, interpretive analysis, and reflections, the author describes and links together the events, people, and experiences that have made these women the excellent teachers they are.
Ayers’ method of using autobiographical reflection to understand teaching practice will be excellent for use in pre-service teacher education classes and inservice teacher renewal efforts. Well-written and highly readable, this book is essential for early childhood practitioners―both women and men―at all levels and within all types of services, and will appeal to researchers and parents, as well.
