This self-reflexive personal narrative charts the autoethnographic journey of an adult educator, exploring her own practices, values and beliefs about teaching. Drawing upon postmodern scholarship in reflexive literary methodologies, the author uses personal memoirs as a research text for engaging in a process of interpretation and re-interpretation, creating new and/or altered readings that may offer the possibility for personal and professional transformation. Six stories - both past and present - are remembered and written into an evocative text designed to created a shared textual space for readers to interpret and explore in the context of their own social and cultural experiences. Its conclusion invites teachers to consider how self-reflexive writing can result in the production of new or altered narratives that have the potential for engaging both self and others in generative change.
