Overlapping selves
the intersection of lesbian identity and professional identity among public elementary teachers working in Northern Ontario.

Published 2005 .
Written in English.

About the Book

This collective biography examined the oral histories of lesbian elementary teachers who work or have worked in the public school system in Northern Ontario. Participants included nine lesbian women in various stages of their elementary teaching careers. Results from individual interviews highlighted the factors that impact the degree of intersection between the personal identity as a lesbian and the professional identity as a teacher. The effects of factors such as age, family, and age of coming out are described and discussed. The degree to which lesbian identity was perceived to be accepted by school leaders was considered to be a significant factor by the lesbian teachers interviewed. A number of recommendations are made for the development of emotionally safe school environments for lesbian teachers that promote participation in professional development and leadership opportunities.
