Keywords:Self-care, Burnout, Emotional Exhaustion, Depersonalization , Personal Accomplishment
Most teachers experience a fair share of job stress and pressure at their workplace. Being burnt out has always influenced a teacher’s self-efficacy and productivity at work. This study investigated the level of self-care and burnout among high school teachers and the predictive nature of self-care on burnout. A stratified clustered sample of secondary public school teachers across five City Schools Divisions of Laguna, Philippines, voluntarily participated. The study employed a descriptive correlational research design to address the research questions. A sociodemographic questionnaire, the Self-care Assessment Worksheet, and the Maslach Burnout Inventory-Educator Survey were used to collect information through an online platform. The results showed that the teachers expressed high levels of physical, emotional, spiritual, and workplace self-care practices and a moderate level of psychological self-care. Across burnout dimensions, the teachers are experiencing moderate levels of emotional exhaustion, depersonalization, and personal accomplishment. Correlation analysis established significant relationships between all dimensions of self-care and personal accomplishment. Regression analysis revealed the predictive ability of workplace self-care practices on personal accomplishment. The findings presented implications and provided recommendations.
