Intention to Return: Alternatively Certified Teachers' Support, Ideology and Efficacy Beliefs

Teacher Development, v11 n3 p263-275 Oct 2007
The Teaching Fellows program in New York City (NYC) is an alternative certification teaching program. This study investigates a sample (n = 68) of Queens College Teaching Fellows' perceptions about their teaching experience. Results indicate that 29% of TFs intend to leave their current teaching positions at the end of their contract. Pearson product-moment correlations revealed that the TFs' perception of the schools' socioeconomic status, administrative support and the TFs' own general teaching efficacy all correlated with planning to stay in their current NYC teaching placement. The intention of the TF to remain teaching at the school currently employed at was predicted based on the level of perceived peer support. The results of this study can serve to inform university programs that offer alternative certification options to prospective teachers. (Contains 2 tables.)
