Sažetak
Teachers’ positive and negative emotions at their workplace arise from personal and contextual factors and play an important role in forming their sense of professional identity and ultimately their commitment, effectiveness and well-being. The aim of this study was to examine the role of teachers’ personality and emotions in explaining their work engagement. More precisely, we tested the mediating role of negative emotions in explaining the relationship between personality and work engagement. The study was conducted on a sample of 935 Croatian high-school teachers who filled out self-report scales measuring resilience, self-efficacy, negative affectivity, work engagement and negative emotions that they experience in relation to their students. Using SEM, two competing models (i.e. partial vs. full mediation) were tested. The obtained results clearly indicated better fit of the partial mediation model to the data ; personality explained the variance of work engagement both directly and indirectly via emotions.
