Blurb/Shorttext:
Second career teachers provide value in the classroom by adding real world experience to textbook knowledge. However these second-career teachers often encounter transition issues which affect job satisfaction. This book is the result of doctoral research which sheds light on what these transition issues are, how and why they affect job satisfaction, and why some second career teachers stay. The framework for the research and conclusions is intrinsic motivation using the self- determination theory and hope using hope theory. Based on a national survey of current accounting second-career professors, the results revealed that transition issues do have an effect on job satisfaction and that self-determination and hope constructs can help explain the relationship adding new understanding about why some professionals do stay in teaching. This research can be a valuable resource for administrators who want to promote an environment where new faculty will want to stay. This book can also help professionals be prepared for a second career in teaching and avoid potential discouragement.
