Drawing on Hyland's (2005) metadiscourse framework, the study investigated how two experienced ESL teachers constructed their identity in their teaching philosophy. Results revealed that each participant has multiple identities, which can be harmonious or at odds with each other, and demonstrated how rhetorical devices can be manipulated to express individuality.
