In this article Nona Lyons explores the nature and meaning of the dilemmas teachers encounter in their classrooms as they, along with their students, respond to and interpret the tasks of learning. Through analyses of teacher narratives, Lyons reveals how the teachers' perspectives toward knowledge and their view of themselves and of their students as knowers enter into their work and can at times be part of their development. In taking up these epistemological issues, Lyons illuminates features of the student-teacher relationship and offers an alternative perspective to current discussions about teachers' knowledge.
