Morrow (2005) referred to Elliott, Fischer, and Rennie (1999), who stated that disclosure of the background of the researcher is an essential condition in qualitative research (Elliott, Fischer, and Rennie, 1999, in Morrow, 2005). In order to comprehend the full meaning of the statements made by any researcher, it is essential to provide information regarding his background, his relation to the research subject and his interest in it. In my view, this is especially true in auto-ethnography and duoethnography, where the narrative will be far better understood if some of the author's life experience is presented in advance. Disclosure of some of my personal background is also necessary in order to contextualise my role in the process as the experienced professional practitioner and teacher. Since the process was a collaborative one, I will also provide some background information related to my co-researchers whose exceptional personal attributes and skills, were a significant contribution to the process.
