This article examined the involvement of in-service teachers in teacher education programs. Specifically, the author asked: 1. in what ways have in-service teachers been involved in pre-service teacher education, beyond the traditional role of the cooperating teacher? 2. what are in-service teachers’ views on teacher involvement in pre-service teacher education and are they willing to become more involved? The author used al litrature review and a survey to collect data. Based on the literature review, there are many potential benefits to increased teacher involvement in pre-service teacher education, including the professionalization of the teaching profession, and, ultimately, better preparing pre-service teachers for the realities of the classroom. The results of the survey indicated that most teachers would consider becoming more involved, if given the opportunity.
