ABSTRACT
Aim of this research is to analyze whether resiliency of physical education and sports teachers that work in primary and secondary schools vary in terms of some variables. Population of the study comprises of a total of 253 physical education and sports teachers (63 female, 190 male teachers) out of 485 physical education and sports teachers that work in primary and secondary schools (Province, District and Village) of Hatay Provincial Directorate of National Education have participated in the research. In order to determine resiliency of the participants, personal information form developed by the researchers and “Scale Of Resiliency” developed by Gürgan (2006a) have been used. Resiliency levels of teachers have been compared in terms of their genders, marital status, place of work (province, district, village), professional service period and types of schools, in which they work (primary, secondary education). SPSS 16.0 statistics package software has been used for calculation and evaluation of the obtained data. The data has been summarized in percentages (%) and frequency tables. Test of normality for the data has been performed through One–Sample Kolmogorov–Simirnov test and it is assumed that the data shows normal distribution. Therefore, the data has been analyzed from parametric tests through independent sample-t test and One Way ANOVA. In this study, error level has been accepted as 0.05.It is observed that there is no a statistically significant difference between female teachers and male teachers when resiliency scores of the teachers are compared in terms of their genders. The research results reveal that elementary education teachers’ scores on positive outlook subtest of “Scale Of Resiliency” is significantly higher in comparison to secondary education teachers. On the other hand, it is suggested that there is no statistically significant difference between teachers that marital status and professional service period when their resiliency scores are compared.
