Message from SIG Chair

Message from SIG Chair Mary Carney

Welcome to the website for the Teacher as Researcher Special Interest Group of the American Educational Research Association.  We are proud to be the only SIG in AERA with the mission of supporting research done by P-12 practitioners on their own practice.  We support and encourage practitioner researchers in their work and recognize the importance of teacher representation and voice in educational research.

We invite teacher-researchers and teacher educators who support teacher-researchers to join our SIG.  We encourage all to attend our AERA annual meeting sessions, business meeting, and reception. Information about past and upcoming events can be found by using the “Meetings” link to the left.

We encourage all teacher-researchers to submit their work to our future meetings and ask teacher educators to support our SIG by promoting teacher research as a place where their students and P-12 colleagues can submit and present their work.  By growing and supporting our community of P-12 teacher-researchers, we seek to elevate the voice of teachers in the broader field of educational research.
