In literature, team teaching is mainly defined as 'collaborative teaching or coteaching, and is an instructional strategy where teachers work together regularly.' This paper discusses teachers' perceptions of team teaching in urban elementary classrooms. According to the results, team teaching is a significant experience in teaching practice, with both positives and negatives being prominent in the research. In this research, two teachers working in an urban elementary school were asked to share their perceptions on team teaching, each teacher being interviewed twice on their experiences. This paper explores some of the themes found in the research data, including: teacher benefits, teacher challenges, teachers' perceived level of enjoyment in the team teaching classroom, measuring the success of team teaching, and student benefits.
