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.
