Teacher research in Canada: Although the job might be hard the quest is worth it. It is about teacher power. We trust teachers and we believe they have powerful knowledge, insight, and experience that should be shared widely-and we mean to attempt that sharing. We are a community, bound by an ethos: we care about children and we want to help them learn. We also believe that teacher research is important and that not enough of it is done. We hope to correct that poverty. Our work is based upon three beliefs about research: 1) the WHAT is important-we need to seek and create knowledge and that knowledge should be based upon our best inquiry; 2) the SO WHAT is important. We are a community of critical action. We need to consider how what we learn SHOULD be applied; & 3) the NOW WHAT is important. We have to actually engage children in the best ways we know how, with the best of what we have learned. This is what The Canadian Journal for Teacher Research is all about. Our goal is to transform teaching in Canada.
