Abstract: The purpose of this study was to give voice to secondary women English teachers engaged in critical pedagogy in their classrooms and to add to the femininine discourse concerned with secondary education. This dissertation represents a qualitative study of five such English teachers from two school districts in a southern state. These women were selected for this study because they have reputations as strong, outspoken teachers whose classrooms afford students the opportunity for critical thinking, intellectual inquiry, and relevant discussion. Each teacher was interviewed for approximately two and one half hours. Specifically, they discussed their educational roles as intellectuals, as professionals, as women, and as critical pedagogues in the classroom. The transcripts of their interviews were critically analyzed and compared to the literature concerned with these aspects of secondary English education.
