Abstract:

This survey-correlational study aimed at ascertaining the public elementary school teacher's self-confidence, readiness for leadership role, and work commitment as related to their teaching performance. This research was conducted on January 2008. The participants of the study were the 260 randomly selected public elementary school teachers in the division of Aklan. The two-stage random sampling method was used in the selection of the participants. Four data-gathering instruments were utilized to gather the data needed for the study: DuBrin's Self-confidence Test (1996); DuBrin's Readiness for Leadership Role Test (1996); Elwin's Work Commitment Rating Scale (1987); and Lisao's Classroom Performance Rating Scale (1998). These data-gathering instruments were pilot-tested among the public secondary teachers in the division of the Iloilo City. Means and standard deviations were utilized as descriptive statistics, while the t-test for independent samples, One-Way and Two-Way ANOVA, and the person's r set at .05 alpha level were employed for inferential analyses. All statistical computations were processed using the Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS) software. Study results reveal that, generally, the teachers had "moderate" self-confidence, are "very much ready" to assume leadership; had "very high" commitment; and had "outstanding" teaching performance. The teachers did not differ significantly in their teaching performance when grouped according to their self-confidence, readiness for leadership role, and work commitment. A significant interaction effect was noted between the teachers' self-confidence and readiness for leadership role on their teaching performance. A significant interaction effect was noted between the teachers' self-confidence and readiness for leadership role on their teaching performance. A significant interaction effect was noted between the teachers' self-confidence and readiness for leadership role on their teaching performance. Positive and significant correlation existed between their teachers' readiness for leadership role and work commitment. On the other hand, no significant correlation were noted between the teachers' self confidence and readiness for leadership role; between their self-confidence and work commitment;between their self-confidence and teaching performance; and between their work commitment and teaching performance.
