LOPEZ DE MATURANA LUNA, Silvia. The emergent complexities in the histories of life of "good professors". Polis [online]. 2010, vol.9, n.25, pp.255-267. ISSN 0718-6568.

Investigating good teachers is a complex task because there is a risk that the investigation may end up oversimplifying their features. There is also a risk of thinking that these good teachers are the ideal to foliow, and this is a mistake as they are just human beings, as the rest of us, but with a great commitment to their jobs and much lo ve for what they do. Thanks to life histories, we were able to understand the process of teaching professionalization and its complexities. We were also able to point out valid trends for any teacher in relation to this professionalization. Analytical construction enabled us to understand and explain what it is that makes a teacher a good teacher: the valué of common sense, improvisation, change consciousness, and pedagogical thinking and action. These features can be enforced during different stages of the professionalization, as they genérate enthusiasm, and political, social and pedagogical commitment with a well done job.

Palabras clave : good teacher; life histories; professional identity.
