The goal of this research was to explore occupational understandings by preparation program. The author conducted interviews with 49 beginning teachers in one labor market, 26 alternatively certified and 23 traditionally certified. The author found that the initial socialization process was weak for both groups, and neither expressed a strong professional or technical identity. All teachers expressed a strong classroom focus and supported the idea of learning through experience. However, there were some key differences in the role of peer groups and pedagogical theory.
