Teaching transitional kindergarten: A snapshot of the teacher experience before UTK expansion


In August 2021, we published highlights on the education and experience of TK teachers in our sample (Williams et al., 2021), and in July 2022, we analyzed their wage and benefits data alongside other publicly available sources for TK/kindergarten teachers (Powell et al., 2022). In this report, we expand on teacher preparation and experience and delve into the domains of job characteristics and classroom/school environment. As such, we aim to explore the unique experience of TK teachers in their public school context prior to program expansion. (author abstract)
