I wish to acknowledge and thank the many people who have contributed in various ways to the creation of this book.

First of all, I was privileged to work with an extraordinary research team on a study that helped to crystallize the conceptualization of ethical knowledge as it is introduced here. Many thanks to my co-investigator, Dr Dennis Thiessen, and research assistants, Anthony H. Normore and Gillian Rosenberg for their insight, methodological and analytical excel- lence, commitment, and enthusiasm, and for always being such great fun to work with.

As a team, we are particularly grateful to the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada for the financial support that enabled this study. I further thank the Council for its previous generous support of other research that also informs this book.

I am indebted to all of the teachers whose voices and experiences are represented in The Ethical Teacher. I will remain forever moved by their professional commitment to teaching and to students; and, I cannot express adequately my respect for them as courageous individuals who were willing to expose and share their philosophies of teaching and ethics, their moral anxieties and fears, and their self-doubts and uncertainties – it is never easy to express oneself on such complex and sensitive issues, and these teachers did so with openness and collegial generosity. Many thanks also to the school administrators who allowed us into their schools to meet such gifted teachers.

This book may not have happened had it not been for the encouragement of my colleague and friend, Dr Andy Hargreaves. I thank him for his years of good will and consistent professional support, and I further thank him and
