dc.description.abstract I have examined, through an analysis of my autobiography, the influences of such cultural factors as patriarchy, economics, religion, and rural life on my 'way of being' as a teacher. I have reflected on how those influences affect my classroom management and interaction with the students, my colleagues, and the educational system in general. My story was compiled from several writings which were assigned in Graduate level classes on teacher development. My research also included information gathered during an independent study on the needs and development of midcareer teachers. A study of the various forms of curriculum that co-exist in th~ classroom initiated my interest in the effects of cultural curriculum on my teaching. I examined my autobiography to identify significant characteristics and then studied the characteristics to determine cultural influences that seemed to foster them. I then researched each of the themes and traced possible ways they may have impacted my way of being in the classroom. I came to a greater understanding of the reasons behind some of my difficulties, and to greater acceptance and comfort with who I am and how I want to be in the classroom. en
