Abstract (2. Language): 
The purpose of this study is to examine the reasons of prospective mathematics and chemistry teachers, who were enrolled in the secondary education programme in two different universities in Ankara, for preferring to be a teacher. 38 prospective teachers participated in this study. In order to understand participants` reasons for being a teacher, they were wanted to answer two open-ended questions. Categories were formed according to the written responses. The analysis of data indicated that both intrinsic and extrinsic reasons were the main factors affecting prospective chemistry and mathematics teachers` preference to be a teacher. Inspiration by chemistry and mathematics teachers during their school period, love for teaching and chemistry or mathematics content knowledge were among the prior preferences.

Bu çalışmanın amacı, Ankara’da iki farklı üniversitenin orta öğretim kimya ve matematik öğretmen adaylarının öğretmenliği tercih etme nedenlerini incelemektir. Çalışmaya 38 öğretmen adayı katılmıştır. Katılımcıların öğretmenlik mesleğini tercih etme nedenlerini anlayabilmek için onlardan iki açık uçlu soruya cevap vermeleri istenmiştir. Bu cevaplar incelendikten sonra kategoriler oluşturulmuştur. Verilerin analizi, katılımcıların daha çok içsel ve dış etkenlerden dolayı öğretmen olmayı istediklerini ortaya çıkarmıştır. Öğretmen adaylarının, öğretmeyi sevmesi, öğrencilik yıllarında kendi matematik ya da kimya öğretmenlerinden olumlu şekilde etkilenmeleri ve kimya ya da matematik alan bilgisine karşı duyulan sevgi, öğretmenliği tercih etme nedenlerinin başında gelmektedir.
