Summary/Abstract: The theoretical analysis in this paper shows that it is reasonable to explore professional identity as an interactive phenomenon because that is the only way a per-son can achieve identification. Contemporary position, role, and function of teachers, as well as the contextual complexity characterized by the surrounding in which teach-ers realize their potential are circumstances and tasks that cannot be achieved without the development of professional identity. Teachers’ professional identity has a holistic and integrative character. It is an inherent quality of pedagogical and professional integrity and ethos. In this paper, the authors define teachers’ professional identity as a relational, insubstantial, and non-subordinate ratio of professional teaching practice (what teachers do) and professional roles and attitudes (what teachers are to themselves and to others).
