The aim of this article is to discuss the issue of teachers’ class identity in the present context of the professionalization of teaching, from the point of view of the concepts of alienation in work and the Marxist theory of social classes. So, the study started from the reality lived out and thought by these teachers, by collecting empirical data using a questionnaire with primary school teachers in Jaraguá, in the State of Goiás. Through this data an attempt was made to get to know their class identity and understand their thinking on concepts such as professional and worker. It could be inferred that educators do not want to be part of the working class because they consider themselves professionals. By denying their working identity teachers lose their potential for opposing capitalism and become simple perpetrators of the dominant ideology.
