Abstract

The purpose of this study was to explore the relationships among physical education teachers’ psychological capital, work stress, and creative teaching at junior and senior high school levels. The questionnaire was distributed to 58 schools in Taiwan and research sample were junior and senior high school physical education teachers. 395 questionnaires were distributed, 369 questionnaires were valid for statistical analysis. Hierarchical regression was used to test the impact of teachers’ psychological capital on their work stress and creative teaching. The findings showed that while self-efficacy, hope, and optimism of psychological capital significantly influenced teachers’ creative teaching positively, personal interaction and professional knowledge of work stress express negative impacts. In addition, it was found that teachers with higher personal interaction stress and higher professional knowledge stress had lower creative teaching. The study suggests to increase physical education teachers’ psychological capital and enhance teachers’ creative teaching and students’ satisfaction.
