MOURA, Anna Regina Lanner de. Memorial: The making of a teacher. Cad. CEDES [online]. 1998, vol.19, n.45, pp. 24-47. ISSN 1678-7110. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0101-32621998000200003.
This account presents the core of my memorial presented during my pre-viva examination for the Ph. D. With its publication, I aim at reflecting, together with the reader, upon determinant moments of my becoming a teacher. My memories and reflections reconstruct this trajectory, from my first school years up to the pre-viva. I present facts that contributed to my profile as a teacher, in my own life history althougs they cannot reflect all its complexity. I follow this track of sucesses avoiding dealing with ill sucesses, errors and consequent sufferings in an attempt to overcome the contradictions present in moments of decision making.
