    One thought on “Sometimes I Can Be Anything: Power, Gender, and Identity in a Primary Classroom”

    1. Would've been more interesting if the author had been less essentialist and binarist in her framework for understanding gender. I enjoyed reading her anecdotes and reflections but was frequently frustrated by the narrow view of gender rooted in "boys and girls are just inherently different."
