This presentation follows from research into the identities of teachers and how these come to play out in practice. We will be reporting on research that looked at teacher's enacted solutions to the challenges of practice and how those reactions make sense in terms of the lives of teachers and the circumstances of schooling. Findings inform how leaders might imagine more individually suited invitations to teacher development.
