Comparing Teacher and Administrator Perspectives on Multiple Dimensions of Teacher Professionalism
Tichenor, Mercedes; Tichenor, John
SRATE Journal, v18 n2 p9-18 Sum 2009
In this paper, we compare teacher and administrator perspectives on multiple dimensions of teacher professionalism. An instrument with a total of 51 professional behaviors and characteristics that operationalize the multiple dimensions of professionalism was developed. Survey participants, including 216 teachers and 89 administrators, were asked to respond whether each item was a high priority, moderate priority, low priority, or not a priority for teachers. Findings suggest that teachers and administrators agree on many aspects of professionalism. However, there are also important areas of disjuncture between administrators and teachers.
