In this paper I analyze how two teachers refer to different metanarratives, about what a teacher is supposed to do or be, when they construct their identiteties as teachers in their lifehistories. I argue that it might be a mistake only to emphasize the latest changes in the educational systems and the metanarrative about marketization and competition in education, when trying to understand teachers identity construction and their adaption to changes. By compairing the teachers narratives with different metanarratives about teacher professionalisation I show how fragments of the metanarratives stand out in the individual narratives. This procedure aims to, and enables, a further discussion about how to benefit by experiences from teachers, when trying to understand what it means to be a teacher in a system framed by the latest dominant metanarrative about education.
