This investigation, which is linked to the research line Professional Formation, Knowledge and Development of the Post-Graduate Program in Education, was thought during my initial formation process, when I participated in the Study and Research Group about Initial and Continued Formation GEPFICA in which I had the opportunity of studying themes that guided me to think about such a proposal. My interests were directed to questions related to alphabetizing teachers practices and knowledge. In this way, when drawing this research, I had as an objective to analyze the life history of two alphabetizing teachers besides reflecting about what they have in relation to the alphabetizing and literacy processes. To the development of this investigation, I have selected to use a qualitative approach based on studies by Bogdan; Biklen (1994), considering the life history of two alphabetizing teachers, having as instruments of information collection some autobiographical writings and also semi-structured interviews. The investigation is based on three themes: Alphabetization and Literacy, Teacher Formation and Teachers Knowledge. In this way, I have used many references: Rizzo (1989), Cortesão (1991), Nóvoa (1992), Barbosa (1994), Freire (1985), Mortatti (2000, 2004), Antunes (2001, 2004), Tardif (2002), Frade (2007), Soares (2003). By the end of the work, it is possible to point out some conclusive notes about their knowledge in relation to alphabetizing and literacy. I perceive that in their teaching practices the teachers mobilize the constructed knowledge both in the initial and continued formation and that they bring to their experiences memories of teachers who have marked their trajectory and that in their daily actions they mobilize the knowledge of experience. In relation to concepts of alphabetization and literacy, I noticed that there is a lack in their formation, taking me to think that the teachers formation should be reviewed in order to search for an improvement of problems related to education practices, based only on experiences.
