Becoming Teachers of Inner-city Students takes on the continuing challenges of White teachers in increasingly de facto re-segregated schools of the present. Drawing on the authora€™s eighteen years of experience as a classroom teacher and his research on White teachers of inner-city students, Becoming Teachers provides key discussions on professional identity for preservice teachers, professional educators, and researchers interested in diversity education or urban education. Driving at complex recognitions of race, class, culture, language, and gender as a basis for teaching and learning with diverse urban students, the authora€™s and other White teachersa€™ life and teaching stories move beyond prescriptive models of professional identity for preservice and professional teachers to a€œfollow.a€ Instead, life and teaching stories in Becoming Teachers demonstrate again and again that in teaching the personal is political, professional knowledges are forged in practice, and a€“ overall a€“ that becoming a professional teacher is a process that draws on onea€™s experiences and inner-most convictions. Becoming Teachers, updating Vivian Paleya€™s White Teacher and reworking Christine Sleetera€™s multicultural research on White teachersa€™ race-evasive identities, moves discussions on White teacher identity toward a second wave of race-visible professional identity for White teachers in the present.
