The goal of this study is also to determine how these beliefs differ among more and less accomplished teachers.

Through qualitative coding of the data, several themes about beliefs revealed differences between the teachers. The more accomplished teachers discussed a need for instructional intensity and linked their roles and responsibilities to academic needs.
