Motivational Differences Throughout Teachers' Preparation and Career
Annette Ponnock,, Benjamin Torsney, Doug Lombardi
Teacher motivation is an impact aspect of the teacher performance and thus student achievement. Given the varying degrees of responsibility, tasks, and obstacles over the course of a teacher's training and career, their motivation is likely to change over time. This study examined the motivational differences of pre-service teachers (PSTs), early, mid, and late-career teachers, as well as differences between early childhood, middle grades, and secondary teachers. Using the Factors Influencing Teacher Choice (FIT-Choice) model of teacher motivation, we found significant main and interaction effects. Motivation was generally highest in pre-service and early childhood teachers; it was lowest in early career teachers with no significant differences between mid- and late-career teachers. These findings have important implications for teacher retention, particularly in early career teachers when they are especially vulnerable to stress and attrition.
