Because of pressing issues such as teacher attrition, we explored differences in student teachers’ expectations and perceptions as they entered teacher education. Thirty-five narrated self-concepts of student teachers in a post-graduate teacher education program were studied.

Combinations of perceptions and expectations were found to be illustrative of three types of sensed dis/continuity in student teachers. The findings assemble into a framework that can be beneficial for researchers and teacher educators in diagnosing dis/continuities in the self-concept and consequent expectations about further development as a teacher.
