Teacher Stress and Administrative Support as Predictors of Teachers' Self-Efficacy for Special Education Teachers in California's Central Valley
Kerr, Michelle Bailey
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, California State University, Fresno
The purpose of this study was to examine the impact that perceived administrative support and stress had on special education teachers' self-efficacy. A survey was used to gather quantitative data from 244 special education teachers in Central California's Tulare and Fresno counties. Using correlation and regression analysis, this study found a significant relationship between perceived administrative support, stress, and teachers' self-efficacy. The findings suggest that administrative support is critical in maintaining teachers' self-efficacy and stress levels. Implications include developing policies to help administrators increase their capacity to support special education teachers.
