Sonoma County Preschools
This study investigated the potential relationship between results from the Early Childhood Provider’s Job Staisfaction (using the tool Early Childhood Job Satisfaction Survey- ECJSS) and Burnout (using The Maslach Burnout Inventory-Educators Survey-MBI-ES). The data for this paper was derived from an ongoing study on the use of reflective consultation in preschools. The ongoing study is being conducted by Dr. Elita Amini Virmani and Dr. Ayumi Nagase from Sonoma State University.
Study participants reported an average of feeling burnout about once per month, feeling depersonalization about a few times per year, and feeling a sense of personal achievement at least a few times per day. Creativity, environment, and colleagues emerged as the most rewarding contributors to their sense of job satisfaction. Future research should investigate the relationship between burnout and valued aspects of work.
Data from this study is descriptive and as such no direct correlation or causation can be derived from this data.
