Teachers as Change Agents: Transforming Classrooms and Communities





Introduction to the Special Issue:

This special issue explores the theme of teachers and teacher educators as agents of change. In assembling this special issue, we sought to lift up the voices and experiences of educators in order to highlight the important ways they are innovating and actively engaged in changemaking around the world. This collection of articles offers an intentionally wide scope for interpreting teacher agency: while all pieces explore ways that educators purposefully impact their students and communities, we allow authors to interpret the concept of change agency and its relevance to their respective contexts.
