This book focuses on one of the phases of teacher’s professional development that has been forgotten by policy makers and training institutions in our country: the first years of teaching. It is a work that, based on a longitudinal study involving fourteen early career teachers, explores the issues of learning, development and change through an approach that combines biographical and contextual variables. This analysis yields interesting and pertinent data for the understanding of the professional identities of beginning teachers, with implications for teacher education policies, for training and induction processes and practices, and for the role of schools (and their leaderships) in professional development of teachers.
