This article reports on the impact that student teachers of physical education might have on the careers of veteran teachers. The author asked how long- time physical education teachers managed to stay fresh in their jobs and to avoid professional burn-out. All three of the veteran teachers studied, considered to reach consistently high standards of effective teaching, had on many occasions been cooperating teachers, assisting in the training of student teachers. Functioning as a cooperating teacher was shown to have increase their enthusiasm for children and the veteran teachers felt that being watched by someone they were mentoring forced them to improve their own performance.
