Abstract

Berry, Courtney A. A narrative inquiry into the experiences of alternatively licensed teachers. Published Doctor of Education dissertation, University of Northern Colorado, 2020. This dissertation explored the lived stories of alternatively licensed teachers on their experiences of becoming a teacher. Field texts were captured through autobiographical writings and staged encounters that emphasized common perspectives in the field of teacher education including the participants’ experiences prior to teaching, their levels of preparedness, and their continued retention in the field. Participants included three alternatively licensed teachers who were three to six years into their careers. Data were analyzed through narrative analysis and interim texts were created to negotiate the stories alongside the participants. Final research texts were created and shared as independent narratives along with common themes to help further the field of knowledge of alternatively licensed teachers.
