Reflects some of the major transition points in becoming a teacher and focuses explicitly on how issues of self and identity bear on these different points.

Book News
In variants on the theme of how teachers can achieve balance between their professional and personal development, a dozen contributors bring their insights to each milestone of teaching: selecting teaching as a career, preservice education, the initiation years, the ongoing process of reexamining and reaffirming one's identity as a teacher, and becoming a master teacher. The editors' starting point is that the cult of efficiency has nearly eclipsed the message that the most critical factor in facilitating students' self- knowledge and self-acceptance is their teacher's self-appraisal and development (Jersild, 1955).
