Tum, Danyal Oztas
As rewarding as it may be. the teaching profession also carries with it considerable challenges and responsibilities. The transition from student teacher to teacher is a formidable step for student teachers. As student teachers approach the end of their teacher education programs and they become aware of the responsibilities and expectations of the profession, it is reasonable they feel overwhelmed, question their abilities, and experience feelings of inadequacy and anxiety. Such feelings can potentially have adverse effects on student teachers' target language use, pedagogical competence, and overall emotional well-being.
