"The dynamics of the insider view and the co-construction of knowledge and curriculum are two very important elements of the research methodology that have characterized my experiences as a practitioner. These dynamics have greatly influenced my professional practices, my own classroom inquiry, my preparation as a teacher, my professional development, and the professional development and service work within educational communities of which I have been a member."
