Although teacher self-development and identity has received much attention in teacher education, there is little empirical evidence on how a teacher cultivates their self-development and construct their identities through the online knowledge community (OKC). This paper narratively reports my personal lived experience and participation in several OKCs as a way to develop myself and construct my professional identity as a teacher educator. Using Clandinin and Connelly’s (2000) narrative inquiry spaces, covering time, social interaction, and place, I narrated the great impacts of OKCs on my self-development and identity. My participation in OKCs has intensely developed my pedagogical knowledge and research skills and encouraged me to pursue my academic and professional goals. The OKCs have successfully helped and led me to be able to write articles and publish them in reputable international journals.
