This study describes how one teacher educator used metaphor as a self-study tool over an eight-year period. The author gathered information about her practice in teaching journal and in notes from discussions in her self-study group, work with individual colleagues, and ad hoc discussions with peers and students. Institutional Teaching Evaluations (ITE) provided additional student perspectives. The work demonstrates how long-term use of metaphors can be a way to step back from practice, take a new look at the meaning of the particulars of practice, and reframe events of practice.
