Teacher preparation programs are crucial in readying pre-service teachers for taking over their own classrooms. Each college and university prepares teachers differently, producing variations within teacher knowledge. However, there is potential that an excellent program could produce candidates without gaps. A carefully designed online survey was sent out to teachers who have been teaching for three years or less, inquiring about where teachers felt preparation programs were beneficial, and where the programs were lacking. Teachers surveyed felt that the most beneficial courses were: classroom management, student teaching, and education methodology, while the areas teachers felt they were unprepared for were: classroom management, time management/collaboration, and age of population being taught.
