Translated title of the contributionA comparison of daily uplifts and hassles of pre-service and in-service teachers
The first practical experience in school is said to be stressful for teachers. In the present study we compare the experience of uplifts and hassles in various teachers’ fields of activity and the well-being of pre-service teachers to in-service teachers. We examine whether teachers experience (a) less difficulties in teachers’ fields of activity and (b) higher well-being with increasing work experience. We conducted two diary studies in which pre-service and in-service teachers reported on their daily uplifts and hassles and their well-being in terms of emotional exhaustion and enthusiasm to
teach over 14 days. Results showed that in-service teachers reported a more favorable ratio of uplifts and hassles in class and in organization than pre-service teachers but did not differ in their well-being.
