This article examines the growing literature on teachers' lives and work histories, beginning to fill what until now has been a significant gap in the educational literature on teachers and schooling. It is argued that looking at teachers' lives, careers, and histories in a broader and fuller social context, enables the development of insight in a grounded and collaborative manner into the social and political construction of teaching. This will then provide a valuable lens for observing contemporary moves to restructure and reform schooling.
