Highlights

Five archetypes of callings are found in in-depth interviews with 76+ teachers.

Spiritual and religious comprehension of callings is exposed through narratives.

The meaning of work expressed as a calling is prevalent in high school teachers.

Abstract

In examining how teachers discover, live, and define their calling to teach, this qualitative study on veteran teachers in different countries in the Americas introduces five archetypes of callings: the listeners, the martyrs, the embedders, the builders, and the chosen ones. Each of them portrays a particular aspect of the experience of having a calling to teach. The narratives of these five teachers, augmented by the 76 teachers interviewed who group themselves within these focal narratives, illuminate the power of calling and suggest a rethinking of spirituality’s role in teachers’ work and identity.
