Later in the same conference the teacher monitoring Bea’s class knocked on the door to confer with her. At this point, Bea again ‘left’ the conference to negotiate another ‘three or four minutes’ with the teacher (actually the conference lasted much longer).

What might an ethnography of supervision reveal? As noted, supervisors generally have undergone enculturation as teachers (see Feiman-Nemser and Floden 1986) and may have evolved or been socialized beyond that into a ‘supervisor culture’. The assumptions and worldview of a teacher then becomes part of the supervisor’s baggage.
