The purpose of this self-study was to identify implications of self-positioning for the author's practice in the stories she tells on her both professional knowledge landscapes: as a teacher in a junior high school and as a teacher educator. Three issues were raised during the course of this study. The first issue revolves around the author's two plotlines of becoming a teacher and why she believes that these plotlines are competing and not conflicting. Another issue raised by this study centers on the idea of the interrogative act of asking someone how they became a teacher, and what assumptions are concomitant with that kind of an inquiry on various landscapes. The third issue deals with changes in her interaction patterns with students on both the public school landscape and the university landscape.

Organic Collaboration: Sustaining Teachers and Teacher Educators in the Cottage Industry of Curriculum Making
This inquiry examines the collaborative relationship between Mary, a teacher at a junior high, and Stefinee, a teacher educator at a nearby university. The purpose of this inquiry is to explore the experiences the authors have had in their collaboration that have sustained both of the authors in their professional lives. The authors use emblematic narratives to make assertions about their collaboration through the use of the metaphor of an informal roadside fruit stand while contrasting their work with larger collectives of school– university partnerships.
