Substitute Teachers: The Professional Contradiction.
Shreeve, William C.; And Others
The substitute teacher's public image was investigated by means of an informal survey of part-time and full-time teachers in Washington. Survey results revealed that working conditions appeared to be the largest factor in damaging the self-image of most substitute teachers. The majority of full-time teachers and administrators surveyed were unaware of substitute teachers' problems and contended that substitute teachers were valued as emergency personnel. Suggestions for improving the self-image of substitute teachers included: orientation programs; positive self-talk; redefinition of goals (on the part of substitute teachers); and socialization with other teachers.
