Education reform and the current wave of "back to the basics" inspired this qualitative case study that explores the qualities that identify a constructivist teacher. Studying a master teacher in an urban school district in the Midwest, who has had success in preparing young primary students, revealed how this teacher meets the "Seven Basic Principles of Constructivist Teaching" (DeVries, Zan, Hildebrandt, Edmiaston, & Sales 2002). Using observation, interview, and archival data - including lesson plans and test scores - thematic coding was applied based on the seven principles. Triangulation of data suggested that the teacher in the study easily met these principles. A focus on what is working in the district could lead to appropriate school reform and provide a direction for preparing our future teachers.
