Abstract

This thesis is a journey reflecting on my' professional practice as a teacher. It also captures the Iived experience of other teachers' stories as they were gathered from the ethnograph!c site, a seconndary senior high school. I provide emphasis throughout this~thesis on the reclamation process of teaching, as I use my own personal, biography of writing, reading, and critical investigation to challeng the disproportionate power relationships being experienced. This reclamation also highlIghts the moral and ethical dimensions of teachers' work. This provides a stark contrast to the 'corporate culture' continually inflicted on teachers, which denounces the presence and significance of the 'many sophisticated personal relationships that exist within learning communities.
