Title of project: 
Teachers' psychological processes
Proposal summary: 

Despite the common belief that teachers can impact various aspects of students' lives, the empirical evidence on the breadth and strength of their influence is relatively unclear. This project aims to examine the relative strength of the influence of teachers' characteristics and behaviours as perceived by multiple raters (i.e., teachers themselves, students, and parents) on multiple experiences and outcomes associated with the teacher (e.g., job satisfaction) and their students (e.g., academic achievement).

Impact of research: 
The project will provide fundamental understanding into which teachers’ characteristics are most associated with various aspects of teachers' and students’ experiences and outcomes. Furthermore, the longitudinal effects of being instructed by a teacher will be examined. The findings can serve as a basis for designing and implementing prevention and intervention strategies in order to promote teachers’ occupational well-being, their performance, and quality of education in general.
