dc.description.abstract Through years of work with at-risk youth, I discovered my calling and decided to become an educator. My greatest strength as a teacher has always been my insight into the often difficult lives of my students, as I was once one of them. This inquiry explores various themes which are common amongst youth at risk through narrative accounts of events from my own childhood and an examination of the effects of those personal experiences on my pedagogy as an educator. This inquiry reveals a different perspective of life for the troubled child and the necessity for intervention. The purpose of this inquiry is to share these insights through an autobiographical format with other educators so that they may be better prepared to make positive interventions on behalf of their students. This project also documents the effects of this style of inquiry on the author both with a literary review and the personal accounts of the author. en
