This document traverses through a series of genealogical stories that span close to a century to provide context to higher learning, education, and development. The stories of elders help us re-member their dreams, re-frame the process for growth, and re-imagine the possibilities for development at the self, organizational, and community levels. Grounded in a community context, the authors present the history of people, place, and work as they learn to become more effective educators. -

Anclados en un contexto comunitario, los autores presentan la historia de personas, lugar, y trabajo conforme aprenden a ser educadores más efectivos.
