Nurtured as a teacher and mentored as a mathematics education researcher, the reflective voice of a teacher‐researcher‐educator is portrayed in this paper. While drawing upon experience of creating teaching‐learning environments, the author outlines the growth of praxis within her practice. She then outlines her coming upon narrative as a deployable unit of analysis with which to grasp teaching‐learning practice. With narrative inquiry as strategy, she finally outlines examples of educational action research she is able to conduct. She argues in favour of empowering the praxis of teachers, recognising their language of practice and urges us to listen to their individual voice.
