The paper presents reflections on the theme Sign Language – Libras Instructor and Teacher of Libras within basic education schools (elementary, middle and high school education). The study aims to reflect on the meaning of the name instructor attributed to the deaf professional in order to understand how that term is reflected in the 5626/2005 Decree. Studying this designation, it appears that the instructor is characterized by the Decree as a professional who does not have pedagogical training, though he or she is expected to play an alternate role to the Libras teacher within basic education schools. Also, the term Libras Instructor has been used to designate deaf professional, even when they exercise activities related to teaching and have completed pedagogical training. Thus, the undertone is that the search for an education that considers culture, identity and learning processes of the deaf will be achieved by the primacy of professionalization, recognition and appreciation of deaf professionals themselves within basic education schools. This appreciation includes the recognition of deaf professionals that teach Libras as a Libras Teacher that should participate in debates and decision making, and should be involved in the educational process of their peers.
