The authors conclude that by understanding the irresolvable tension of desire to have one’s story told, a teacher has a better chance of recognising her own vulnerability and that of her students, and of teaching at the starting place of ethics.

In this article, the author suggests parables as means for enlivening teacher education and for stretching understanding. The author starts by offering a definition of parables. Then, the author presents an analysis of three examples—The Storm, The Sower, and The Fish and the Turtle—to illustrate some of the rich interpretative possibilities they offer for thinking critically and imaginatively about teaching and learning. Finally, the author considers a few reasons why parables have potential for enhancing teacher education, including as a means for exploring moral commitments and beliefs and for generating theories about teaching and learning.
