Letting go of perfect: One Qallunaat teacher’s journey of positionality using narrative inquiry in Nunavik Balfe, William Joseph


Instead of positioning one as unproblematic, teachers may benefit from examining the cracks in their own lives as an intersection where mutual dialogue and respect for each other may begin. Using narrative inquiry, personal journal entries, artwork, scholarship, and memory excavation, one white teacher, having returned to the South, examines his and his family's four year story of living and teaching in an Inuit community in Nunavik (Northern Quebec).
