Professional Satisfaction of Teachers from Kindergarten. Preliminary Study
Anghelache, Valerica
Acta Didactica Napocensia, v7 n4 p37-42 2014
Professional development is a topic of great interest for all those who are involved in educational field, makers and teachers. It's approached closely related to organizational development, both representing a result of continuous changes in education. At individual level, professional development has both an internal determination (a need to perform), but it is conditioned by the new requirements of teaching and learning activity. An important variable is also the professional satisfaction. The main objective of the study is to determine the level of professional satisfaction of teachers from Kindergartens from Galati, Romania, and the relationship between this one and teaching degree. The study is based on empirical research conducted on a sample of 124 subjects, teachers from different kindergartens from Galati, Romania. The partial results seem to indicate that, generally, the teachers from kindergarten have different levels professional satisfaction: some of them believes that adaptation to the new professional requirements generate professional satisfaction and professional development, other believes that professional success can be achieved with less involvement. School efforts for professional development of teachers become insufficient if they are not correlated with teachers' efforts. We believe that is necessary shifting focus off career management on self-management career, which involves assumption of professional becoming at individual level. In the context of deepening of educational reforms, promotion of some effective policies of teachers' professional development is absolutely necessary, especially they are the main driver of the Romanian school reform.
