This article focuses on distinctive teachers' personal qualities, perceptions of teacher education and the realities of teaching. Teacher educators believe that they prepare students to perform a better quality of teaching than that typically observed in schools, despite the fact that most graduates soon abandon the teaching practices they learned during preparation in favor of practices which conform to the existing customs of the school system they teach in.
