According to the National Commission on Teaching and America's Future, 30-50% of beginning teachers leave teaching within the first 5 years of their career (2005). Frequently these teachers are not given tools to survive the transition from teacher preparation to classroom practice. As a mentor and administrator for the Beginning Teacher Assistance Program (BTAP) at the University of Missouri--St. Louis, I was interested in researching the question: How can BTAP, as an external network for new teacher support, provide needed and effective follow-up support for St. Louis area beginning education professionals in the field? As a result, I chose to do a formative evaluation of BTAP in order to clarify the needs of the target population and improve program operations.
