A Self-Actualization Process for Teachers.
Doggett, Maran
The objective of this practicum was to develop and evaluate a process of self-actualization for promoting personal and professional growth in teachers. The process that was developed and implemented involves eight steps: (a) the "ideal me-teacher," (b) the "me-now teacher" by the principal, (c) the "me-now teacher" by the teacher, (d) improvement of communication with numbers, (e) compromise, (f) decision concerning self-actualization level, (g) development of strategies, and (h) final assessment of teacher growth. Subsequent investigation showed that most participating teachers at Belmont Junior High School actualized in a positive direction toward becoming more effective teachers. Application of this process in another elementary school and at another level of educational supervision suggests that the process may be useful to teachers and administrators at any level. Appendixes include teacher evaluation forms, ratings of the teacher from the perspective of the teacher and the principal, a growth chart, and a survey on self-actualization. (Author/PD)
