Differences between Self-Perceived and Job Realities of Beginning Teachers.
Marson, Ronald N.; Pigge, Fred L.
Journal of Teacher Education, v38 n6 p53-56 Nov-Dec 1987
Analysis of the extent to which 24 working conditions influenced the self-perceived reality shock of 211 beginning teachers revealed that the subjects' reality ratings were more positive than their expectation ratings in only two areas: help from other teachers and administrator observations. Teachers generally reported different sources of disappointment in their first year of teaching. (Author/CB)
