A narrative inquiry into the experiences of elementary teachers with seeking support

  • Author(s) / Creator(s)
  • This research explores the experiences of two elementary school (K-6) teachers with seeking support. Informed by narrative inquiry methodology, this research inquired into the perceptions and experiences of two elementary teachers as they sought support from administrators, colleagues, and digital media. Through critical dialogue, discussion, and inquiry I engaged with and learned alongside two in-service teachers. Through an analysis of the field texts, three narrative threads emerged that intertwine between the stories. The threads are: “I can ask him anything,” “They accepted me with open arms,” and “If I was in a position to speak up, I would have been like, that’s not okay!” This research was conducted to develop a deeper understanding of the factors that shape the support-seeking behaviour of teachers.
