This study examined what teachers' professional knowledge was about, how it was organized, and how it could be described. Researchers conducted semi-structured interviews with 29 elementary school teachers in Helsinki, Finland. The teachers were selected from a group who had supervised teacher trainees in their own classrooms. Data analysis indicated that the teachers focused on three themes: their teaching, their students, and themselves as teachers. The issues were interdependent rather than separate, and teachers tended to discuss them simultaneously. Teachers perceived their teaching activities in relation to their students' studying activities. The place and limits of the professional self were difficult to define, though the concept of self and professional self overlapped. A second analysis of the data resulted in a reconstruction of three levels of teachers' knowledge. On the first level, teachers mainly described practical activities of their teaching, their students' studying, and student behavior. On the second level, teachers explained actions examined on the first level, offering good reasons for doing things the way that they did them. On the third level, teachers justified both their practical actions and their explanations. (Contains 61 references.) (SM)
