This article is about the need to provide a channel of reflexion, discussion, and action with high school evening class teachers, and consequently, promote a teaching improvement. For the past few years, teaching evening classes has been only a simulacrum. For such, we present some results of a reseach iniciated in December, 2003, at the Colégio Estadual Presidente Kennedy, in the city of Berlford Roxo, State of Rio de Janeiro. The research was done among teachers, students, staff, and directors. We want to make evident the complexity of any changing process. We do not change by decree or desire of this or that group. Changing is a process and, therefore, requires a strong work of deconstruction and reconstruction to which the actors of such process will have to dedicate themselves with competence and patience. It is not only about changing, but about innovating.
