Professional Identity and Burnout among Pre-School, Elementary, and Post-Elementary School Teachers in Israel
Fisherman, Shraga
Journal of Curriculum and Teaching, v4 n1 p1-13 2015
The novelty of the present study is its attempt to distinguish between pre-school, elementary, and post-elementary school teachers, regarding the relationship between professional identity and burnout. Two hundred and forty teachers responded to two questionnaires: professional identity and teacher burnout scales. Pre-school teachers were found to be less burned out than their elementary and post-elementary school colleagues, for both general burnout score, and the factors of non-fulfillment and depersonalization. Regarding general burnout, no significant difference was found between elementary and post-elementary school teachers. Elementary school teachers had significantly higher scores for general professional identity and its factors than pre-school and post-elementary school teachers. Regression equations of different kinds were found for predicting burnout according to professional identity factors and years of experience.
