Early career researchers (ECRs) in education bring unique histories of professional practice and development into academic research communities. Women Becoming Practitioner Researchers explores autoethnographies of twelve women who were, or still are, schoolteachers in the process of becoming researchers. Using autoethnography to disrupt the established systems that distance researchers from their research, the chapters in this volume are curated to apply theory to this important transition. This theory as method approach provides a foundation for understanding as the authors’ weave threads of identities and experiences into their roles as practitioner researchers.

Alongside her teaching and research, has worked with community-based and international non-governmental organizations focused on inclusive education.
