    Voices Inside Schools - Cacophony to Symphony: Memoirs in Teacher Research

    Karen Hale Hankins
    We are pleased to inaugurate our new Voices Inside Schools section with "Cacophony to Symphony: Memoirs in Teacher Research," by Karen Hale Hankins. In this article, Hankins explores the connection between her personal history and her present classroom teaching through the process of journal writing. She records in her journal her observations about her class, her teaching, and her memoirs of her own past as they are sparked by present events, feelings, and challenges in her classroom. Hankins discovers that her past experiences, when carefully reflected on, can help her better understand, and thus reach and teach, her students, even those with whom she once felt she had little in common.
