Fighting for better education is a constant feature in every country’s public policy, being focus on educators one of the main components in such policies. This proposal recognizes educators as historical beings, which, once incorporated to educational institutions, are constructed and reconstructed in personal, professional and social manners. These three central areas are discussed from a complex perspective throughout the proposal. The first aspect refers to motivation, satisfaction and learning. The second recognizes the need for improvement of conditions for communication, making agreements, spaces for reflection and learning communities. Finally, the third aspect describes the role of education for community development that benefits the society. This approach was based on two research projects’ results: “Professional development of teacher educators: a complex view” and “Debating the teacher’s professional development”.

Keywords : complexity; professional development; teaching.
