ELT teachers' stories of resilience

This paper is a report of a narrative inquiry which aimed to analyse ELT teachers' stories of resilience.

The participants are six early career teachers, three in Brazil and three in the United Kingdom. Resilience is a fundamental element in teachers' lives. To understand how ELT teachers exercise their resilience, the researchers had four recorded conversations with each participant during a year. The field texts also include visual narratives (four drawings per participant, consisting of self-portraits and images of resilient teachers) and their recorded explanations provided at the end of each conversation.
