Zhu, Mingjing; Liu, Qian; Fu, Yao; Yang, Tianan; Zhang, Xingli; Shi, Jiannong – Teachers and Teaching: Theory and Practice, 2018
Teacher self-concept and efficacy have been investigated with burnout separately, while the two self-beliefs might work together to impact burnout. Guided by a model of the cyclical nature of teacher efficacy, we aimed to extend previous work on self-perceived predictors of teacher burnout by simultaneously investigating teacher self-concept and…

Four cases of leavers are purposefully selected because they…
