Dear Jack & Donna -
Valerie and I thank you for your thoughtful reviews and feedback. We very much appreciated the opportunity to revise and resubmit this work. We have attempted to address each of your points and hope that you will find our revisions adequate. We have done some editing as well, checking all of our references, citations, etc.
We are attaching for your further review our manuscript entitled "A collaborative retrospective analysis of becoming teacher educators." We are happy to answer any questions you might have and/or clarify anything necessary.

Dear Laurie & Valerie - I've enjoyed your paper and can recommend it for publication in EJOLTS. I like particularly the way you have integrated the personal, professional and academic within your writings which relate self-study, narrative inquiry and living-educational-theory - congratulations.
Just a tiny typo which we will pick up in the proof reading stage:
Whitehead, J. (2008). Using a living theory methodology in improving practice and generating educational knowledge in living theories. Educational Journal of Living Theories, vol. 2, p. 103-126.
To be consistent with your other references (and accurate) this should be:
Whitehead, J. (2008). Using a living theory methodology in improving practice and generating educational knowledge in living theories. Educational Journal of Living Theories, 1(1), 103-126.
Warm regards, Jack.
Laurie and Valerie
I enjoyed your paper and definitely think you should do another similar one in three years time after a period in your leadership roles. In your analysis I recognised the newcomer and workload issues but for me the identity section was the most powerful. The experiences that you conceptualise as credibility, vulnerability and authenticity have real resonance for my own experience in becoming a university-based teacher educator and have also emerged in the findings of my research in England.
