Abstract

This self-study describes the ways in which a move to a different state, university, and academic role has shaped my sense of self as a scholar, teacher educator, and college administrator. I draw from role theory and from conceptions of habitus and field to provide a conceptual lens for interpreting the data and my experiences. I then address two related issues that affect my identity on a daily basis: the ways in which my prior practice is influencing my current practice and the professional costs and benefits of moving to a new state and a new institution late in one's career.
