The primary purpose of this article is to report how Turkish student teachers identify and reflect on the "critical incidents" of schooling that they bring as they enter a new teacher education program. "Critical incidents" are descriptions of incidents in one's past that are viewed as significant in one's learning and development (see Brookfield, 1998; Obara, 1993). The secondary purpose of this article is to analyze these incidents to inform the first author's teaching and field supervision.
