Abstract: Research on teacher educators in physical education has been the exception, rather than the rule, despite their importance in teacher preparation programs. Fifteen teacher educators possessing a doctoral degree and experience in public schools were selected as subjects from four universities in an effort to launch systematic inquiry in this area of scholarly need. Structured interviews were used to gain information about their recruitment into their professorial roles and their current role orientations. Among the findings was a lack of consensus among them regarding the Ideal teacher, physical education program, teacher educator, and teacher education program, a dominant socialization pattern in which biography emerged as more important than formal education, and personal work priorities that often conflict with institutional reward systems. Five conclusions and their attendant implications emerged from the related findings and signal future research directions.
