A Self-Narrative of One Preschool Teacher’s Peer Interaction.
This study was to narrative my interaction with my peers. There were a lot of the ups and downs of peer interaction challenges in my over twenty-year teaching experiences. I would explore my challenges, and how to cope with these challenges, how to adjust myself and adapt coping strategies encountering different challenges. This study adopted with narrative analysis approach. I was the research participant. My story revealed the process of interaction with peers in my teaching careers. Through this self-narrative study, I really hope I can understand myself in depth and reflect my professional development in order to move forward. In the study, I collected my instruction diary and reflection journal, and doing informal interviews with peers. The main finding were as follows: (1). While there were diversities in teaching ideology between I and cooperating teacher, I usually actively interact with her, and be considerate, empathic and patient. (2).When I failed to reach a consensus with the peers after communication, I wouldn’t pay attention to our difference between us. (3). Owing to the frequent changes with cooperating teachers, it was needed for me to spend much time and energy to adjust myself to deal with teaching issues in the classroom. (4). When I was a part-time or full-time administrator, I always put empathy on reconciling the differences between instruction and administration, and tried my best to provide my peers more teaching autonomy. From doing this self-narrative study, I found that I often ignored the mutual understanding and communication with my peers in advance in the past, which easily led to mental dissatisfaction with each other. At present, I believe the “conflict” between the peers may be a good chance for us to mutually develop and help children to grow. I really hope that through my self-narrative study, early childhood teachers would learn how to deal with peer interaction challenges and apply effective strategies to these challenges.
