This research project aims to understand the meanings of teacher collective work within the school with the new demands of teaching organization in decades. As an example of these demands, we can enunciate: a curricular organization for cycles; the introduction of a six year old child in elementary school because the school nine years; new evaluation procedures; new times and spaces of school organization such as school full time. These changes have demanded, from professionals, new collective challenges in their daily lives. We will analyze the testimony of teachers in public schools, São Paulo state, on the living in the relationship between policies and their daily lives at school. Work recover memories of everyday changes experienced to understand the meanings produced by teachers in the context of the school community. Studying the history of individuals locally in this case teachers of some public schools not meant to restrict the work, because as noted in (EZPELETA AND ROCKWELL, 1989) local history is loaded from the broader context and may lead us to understand its plot entangled in other dimensions and spent looking at the size of the political cycle in which the subjects are caught from the demands of certain educational policies.
