Cheng, Yuan-Wen; Ren, Lillian
Journal of Intellectual & Developmental Disability, v35 n1 p44-47 Mar 2010
Background: Job satisfaction and job stress have been shown to be consistently related in a range of school education studies. The purpose of this research was to investigate how well the job satisfaction of resource room teachers in Taiwan may be predicted through an understanding of their job stress and demographic characteristics. Method: A total of 153 elementary resource room teachers in Taoyuan were questioned using a self-report questionnaire. Following the questionnaire, 10 veteran resource room teachers were asked to provide further insight into their work. Results: For the 135 participants, both the working condition dimension of job stress and education level were significant predictors of job satisfaction. The results are discussed in terms of the Taiwan context. Conclusions: Along with initiatives to improve the professional qualifications of teachers, some changes may assist in improving the job satisfaction of resource room teachers and extending their careers in Taiwan.
