This project is developed in Italy, France, Turkey and Portugal as socio-anthropological research on teachers, with samples drawn from infant to higher secondary schools. Teachers in service describe their work practices and procedures, and their feelings, inside and outside of school. They are asked to describe their relations with other teachers, headmasters, parents, students in the frame of their professional status. We looked for a strong feeling of being a teacher at each level of schooling. We found that the social identity of teachers is greater in secondary school than in infant and primary school, depending on the level of social expectations.
