This article investigates the attitudes and feelings of United States public school teachers about those they often see as “others”—people unlike themselves. What does research tell us might be the consequences of teachers’ attitudes and feelings towards students and their families? What can we learn about diversifying the teacher pool from reading the life histories of Latino/a teacher candidates? The author posits that if more teachers could begin to see their lives as intricately intertwined in personal and professional well-being with those people whom we often seen as “others,” we would enrich our present and futures, those of our students, and their families.
