Abstract

This article aims to highlight how those who have migrated between both Mexico and the United States, and whom will be referred to as transnationals, arrive to an understanding of their professional identity developing as English teachers throughout central Mexico. A qualitative approach was selected to explore the lived epistemologies of the participants and the construction and reconstruction of their professional identity through phenomenology. The data suggests that the past migrating experiences of the participants play a crucial role in how they are viewed within their English teaching practice.
