Two teachers and a university professor engaged in a joint analysis of data generated while the three worked together in a student teacher/methods instructor and supervisor relationship. They each discuss the images of teaching they brought with them to the student teaching context and how those images influenced their perceptions of the semesters' events, with attention to the mixed messages that were constructed. Following the separate discussions, they write together about the possible implications of their work for other student teachers and university based teacher education.
