Abstract

Teachers’ effectiveness and commitment towards their job are related to the way they value their significance and professionalism. In other words, the way teachers value themselves is related to their professional identities. This research was conducted to examine the nature of teachers’ dimensions of identities and how these dimensions interconnected to each other in determining teachers’ effectiveness. Research participants were 20 teachers, ranging from new to senior teachers from ten secondary schools. Data was generated through one-to-one interviews. The analysis of data was conducted using thematic analysis. The findings showed the emergence of four main dimensions of teachers’ identities. This paper explained in details the influences of these sets of identities on teachers’ effectiveness.
