In a constantly expanding and globalized world, the voice of Kuwaiti women teachers and their perception of their cultural identity is burdened with adapting to new educational trends mainly from the West, and accommodating an increasing student populations. This creates a disconnect between the basis where educators learn/gain their ethic of care and what's expected of them to perform. This dissertation sheds some light on the severity of this disconnection and the origins of the manifestation of the ethic of care in Kuwaiti women educators. The major findings of this study are the existence of an 'anchor relationship' the narrators had, and a strong familial foundation that served as an `anchor relationship' for some narrators. Other findings indicate the necessity of revamping the teacher preparation program (T.P.P.) in order to ameliorate the current gap in embracing the Kuwaiti cultural codes.
