Quality teachers should cultivate a sense of professionalism and a pronounced professional identity (Sachs, 1999; Fullan, 2000; Darling-Hammond, 1997; Hooley, 2005). "Teacher identity is deeply involved in teaching and should therefore be recognized and nurtured" (Nieto, 2003: 6). Professional identity development involves the process of individual maturation that begins during initial training for the profession. Moreover, these processes can be seen as a comprehensive experience that helps practitioners connect theory with practice and reality (Živković, 2012).
