This edited volume poses the multi-faceted question:
What does it mean to be a teacher?

The essays examine images of schoolteachers in this society as constructed in the minds of children and teachers and as conveyed in various contexts -- narrative, media, literature, and textbooks. The text includes "Continuing Dialogue" activities to stimulate further discussion, writing, research, and interpretation.
