We are faced today with several teachers with psychological illness, which leads to their removal of classrooms and subsequent relocation in other functions. In this way, the objective of this paper is to discuss the relationship established between the illness of relocated teachers and the sense given to the pedagogical practice, based on the assumptions of Cultural-Historical Psychology. 
Development: initially, we address teachers’ illness and relocation; subsequently, we bring some assumptions of Cultural-Historical Psychology that can assist us in understanding the illness, discussing the concepts of sense and meaning, as well as briefly presenting some initial ideas on Psychopathology. As results, we defend the need for discussing the topic of research anchored in assumptions that go far beyond an individualistic, positivist analysis that naturalizes the phenomena, taking historicity into account. We conclude that, in several cases of illness of relocated teachers, there is a division between sense and meaning of teaching practice, being necessary to create, in schools, collective alternatives so that teachers and students can make use of the knowledge produced by humanity.
