Summary

This document focuses on the experiences of three beginning teachers, contrasting the personal perspective of each teacher (the "Inside Voice") as reported to the researcher, and the more removed perspective developed by the researcher him/herself (the "Outside Eyes"). The first teacher instructs a single class at an urban vocational high school and field supervises work-study students for the rest of the school day. Undertrained and isolated from staff interaction because of his limited school-based activity, the teacher suffers intellectual near-paralysis due to self-doubt and anguish. The second case study is of a female French teacher in a rural high school. Her perceived satisfaction and success are contrasted with the researcher's perceptions of her self-isolation from fellow staff and her fear of innovation represented in her insistence on rote memorization and strict adherence to text-prescribed instructional sequences. The third case study is of an intermediate grade parochial school teacher who, unable to reconcile needs for classroom control with personal needs for satisfaction, resigns in mid-semester for health reasons.
