This paper examines the practice of two novice teacher educators working as instructional coaches in a university-based teacher education program. Previous research suggests that the knowledge and skills required to be an effective teacher are distinct from those required to be an effective teacher educator. Yet novice teacher educators often receive minimal preparation. This qualitative study identifies dilemmas that novice coaches encounter during observation debrief conversations in order to inform coach training. The findings suggest that the process used by the researchers to surface dilemmas may also be a useful intervention in shaping the identity and practice of novice teacher educators.

Supporting Presence in Teacher Education: The Connection between the Personal and Professional Aspects of Teaching
The current study follows one individual student teacher during a period of one single school year in which she was supported in developing ‘presence’ while teaching. In this paper, both the teacher's growth and the supervisor's interventions are described in detail, and illustrated using quotations from supervisory sessions, logbooks, and interviews. A case is made for connecting professional and personal aspects in supervising student teachers.

Beginning teachers are confronted with many issues as they begin their teaching careers, issues, such as classroom management, individual differences, behavior problems, dealing with parents, and so on. In this article, the authors argue that the best approach to professional development is through a collaborative action research model. By extending the partnerships established between student teachers, mentor teachers and university supervisors during student teaching into the beginning teachers' career, many of the everyday problems can be confronted within a supportive network.
