Teaching and Identity

Identity is manifold. It is ever-changing. Our experiences, encounters, relationships, our paths through life, forge and change our multiple identities. As teachers, our identity is at the core of what we do and how we do it. As teachers, reflecting on our identity takes on a whole new meaning and responsibility as we examine and align our beliefs and values with our actions.

In 2017, Learn to Change has published a series of articles related to identity, providing food for thought and practical ideas for action.
