This paper reports on a comprehensive survey of 1400 recent graduates of 11 teacher preparation institutions and nearly 500 principals who supervise them in their new teaching jobs and discusses data concerning leadership and collegial sharing of knowledge. The discussion of results focuses on two parts of the survey questionnaire: graduates' perceptions of themselves as leaders or change agents in their schools, and an open-ended question on the graduates' perceptions of how they "stand out" from their teacher-peers. Analysis of responses suggests that: (1) graduates of the 11 institutions were less willing to describe themselves as leaders or change agents than were the principals with whom they work; (2) graduates who have been teaching for 4 or 5 years perceive themselves to be functioning as leaders more often than their counterparts who have been teaching for 1 to 3 years, but still reported a low incidence of what they considered leadership behavior; (3) informal leadership behaviors were reported more often than traditional teacher-leader roles; (4) graduates described themselves as "standing out" among their teacher peers because they loved, cared about, and related well to children, tried new ideas and strategies in the classroom, had excellent rapport with colleagues, parents, and administrators, and were enthusiastic about teaching.
