Abstract

Although educators spend four years of their lives preparing for the role of a teacher, itis an obvious fact that not everything can be taught in the college classroom. To determine some of the trouble areas faced by beginning science teachers, a questionnaire was sent to all Indiana high school science departments. This survey resulted in some interesting information in nine different areas that may cause stress for first year teachers. Much advice was given by experienced teachers to help prepare anyone who may read the results.
