This paper presents the results of a case study involving Taiwanese elementary teachers who teach science at the elementary grade school level. It advocates the position that a teacher's personal science efficacy belief influences his or her science teaching outcome expectations. It also points to an important metamorphosis that is taking place within the ranks of the elementary school system. It is believed that this transformation is related to the success Taiwan has experienced in being rated number 1 in science education (NCES 1999). (Contains 2 tables.)
