Winter, Jeffrey S.
SRATE Journal, v20 n1 p27-32 Win 2010-2011
This paper examines motivations for becoming a teacher educator and explores ways in which teacher educators can find renewal, revitalization, and sustenance during times of challenge. The field of teacher education is discussed through the lens of the classical notion of "calling" or vocation. The article provides a context for examining the nature of vocation and suggests a context for sustaining personal growth in teacher education.
