This is a story of my journey to ‘become’ a science teacher educator. I am in a transitionary process of making the shift, the shift from science teacher to science teacher educator and I am finding this to be difficult, challenging and confronting. However, with the assistance of my critical friends (co-authors) and teaching colleagues, I am able to explore my journey through a lens of discontent. I present to you three themes that emerged from my self-study: seeing what I don’t know: the novice in me; the shift: transforming science content into meaningful science teaching and learning, and putting theory into practice. I conclude with a description of my learnings.
