Holly_LinklaterI am an Educational researcher and a former primary school teacher. I am particularly interested in practice, and reseach, that focuses on a commitment to recognizing all children’s humanity and how diversity and difference do not need to be barriers to educational or social inclusion. I ask questions like ‘what does it mean to be everybody’s teacher?’ I am interested in how teachers think about children and young people as learners; how and why teachers make particular choices and decisions; and, the sort of knowledge and expertise that might be required in order to respond to the needs of children and young people. I was drawn to comics as a possible way to represent my research data and a philosophy or description of becoming and being a teacher.
