A Case Study of an Experienced English Teacher's Self-Efficacy and Persistence through "Crisis" Situations: Theoretical and Practical Considerations
Milner, H. Richard
High School Journal, v86 n1 p28-35 Oct-Nov 2002
The purpose of this case study was to understand and to describe the sources of self-efficacy (Bandura, 1997) for an experienced European American teacher in a suburban high school. Like other teachers who may have left teaching, this teacher had been challenged over the years. This could have threatened her sense of self-efficacy and ultimately resulted in her leaving the teaching profession. Yet she persevered. Her experiences can teach us about teacher self-efficacy and teacher persistence. Findings of this case study have implications for teacher self-efficacy theory, for future research, and for teacher retention. (Contains 2 footnotes.)
