Clearing House, v75 n4 p212-17 Mar-Apr 2002
Interviews suburban Chicago, Illinois preservice and inservice teachers to explore reasons why they chose teaching as a second career. Finds these second-career teachers are activated by altruism and perceived personal benefits; they see themselves as different from first-career teachers in subtle but significant ways; and they believe they can offer valuable skills from their previous careers.
