Professional identity refers to having a clear understanding of one's own behavior and the function, value and significance of a profession in the process of engaging in a profession. Professional self-identity can clearly reflect practitioners' attitudes and value judgments on their profession. Therefore, from the perspective of teachers in special schools, this chapter explores teachers' own identity on this profession by studying their initial motivation, emotional expression and future will.
