The purpose of this study was to find out how pre-service and in-service science teachers' perceptions differ on the characteristics of good science teachers. In orderto obtain this information, 29 pre-service science teachers who are senior students studying science teaching in English and 29 in-service science teachers who are science teachers in Anatolian and Private high schools in central Ankara were given a questionnaire about good science teachers' characteristics. The questionnaire has 50 questions and established over six categories that are teachers' classroom behavior and relationships, teaching and other experiences, school and community relations, confidence on subject matter, professional activities, and bilingualism. For analyzing the data, mean and standard deviation and frequency analysis of each category were used. The results indicated that in-service science teachers' perceptions were significantly different than pre-service science teachers' perceptions about all categories except confidence on subject matter.
