The population of this research consists of teachers who work at public primary and secondary schools located in the central districts of Ankara, Turkey. The sample of the study is composed of 303 primary and secondary school teachers working in central districts of Ankara, Turkey. The research design is a correlational study identifying the direct predictive powers of humility and forgiveness on teacher self-efficacy. Pearson product-moment correlation coefficient identifies the inter-variable exploratory correlations, while path analysis examines the direct predictive powers of these factors on teacher self-efficacy. The analyses show positive and significant relationships among teacher self-efficacy, humility and forgiveness. Humility and forgiveness are found to positively predict teacher self-efficacy.
