This research aims to explore the relation between ego-resilience and job burnout of preschool teachers. Its first objective is to investigate different factors resulting in preschool teachers’ ego-resilience. Second, it is meant to investigate different factors causing preschool teachers’ job burnout. The third objective is to identify the differences of ego-resilience and job burnout causes among preschool teachers with various backgrounds. Finally, it is meant to identify and analyze possible relation between preschool teachers’ resilience and job burnout.
The data were collected through questionnaires from a sample of 360 teachers at public and private preschools in both Tainan City and Tainan County. The 360 respondents filled out a questionnaire in which there are a Scale of Preschool Teachers’ Ego-resilience and a Scale of Preschool Teachers’ Job Burnout. The data were processed with dependent sample ANOVA, one-way ANOVA and structural equation modeling (SEM).
The result shows that there is significant difference in the factorial structure of preschool teachers’ ego-resilience. Among the factors, “optimistic thinking” performs the best, while “relaxation techniques” performs the second best, and “use of humor” performs the worst. On the other hand, there is significant difference in the factorial structure of preschool teachers’ job burnout. Among the factors, “low personal accomplishment” performs the best, while “emotional exhaustion” performs the second best and “depersonalization” performs the worst. The analysis of ego-resilience and job burnout of preschool teachers with various backgrounds reveals that “characteristics of kindergartens” and “salary” have significant difference. Results of structural equation modeling show that there is negative correlation between preschool teachers’ ego-resilience and job burnout. In other words, the higher the resilience is, the lower the job burnout will be.
The findings provide helpful information to preschool teachers in Tainan City/County, and generate practical suggestions for future study.
