Summary

This project investigated the significance of preservice teachers' experiences and the residual effects of those experiences, noting how a volunteer new teacher program had assisted preservice teachers and examining the effects of participation in special programs. Surveys were sent to 122 alumni of Northeastern Illinois University. Respondents were teachers who had attended the Beginning Teacher Meetings, teachers who had received materials from the Beginning Teacher Meetings but had not participated regularly, and preservice teachers who had participated in the university's apprenticeship program in local school districts. The survey examined respondents' background, their personal and professional competence, and the impact of the university's preservice teacher education program. A total of 38 usable surveys were returned. Results indicated that participants were teaching, successful, and enjoying their chosen profession. The university's program positively affected them, prepared them to be good teachers, and contributed to their overall success. Respondents believed that the volunteer new teacher program provided invaluable services. The survey instrument is appended. (SM)
