Place-conscious education advocates for pedagogy that is shaped by the context in which education occurs. By carefully attending to students' backgrounds, cultural histories, and lived experiences within a particular place, teachers are better able to design curricula that support students in developing understanding of their cultural identities and the connections between their lives and the world beyond their classrooms. In this chapter, the author reflects on her journey toward becoming and being a place-conscious teacher in rural education settings.
