Summary In this handy book, Icy Lee and Paul Sze share openly about their careers as nonnative English speaker educators in TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) and reflect on their teaching by recollecting their own experiences as learners, teachers and teacher educators. Also included are stories of other pre-service and in-service teachers with whom the authors have come into contact. Through teachers' stories that illustrate multifarious issues in TESOL, the book provides a source of inspiration for nonnative speaking professionals in the field, encouraging them to examine issues that are central to their career and to reflect on their own practice critically. The book consists of four sections that address core issues in second language teacher education, each beginning with an introduction, followed by a number of stories and ending with a few questions for stimulating further discussion on the issues
