Abstract

This study examined the relationship amongst the variables of resiliency, subjective well-being, emotional intelligence, teachers’ self-efficacy and physical activity in the context of pre-service teachers' (N=17) coping before and during their teaching practicum. There were significant relationships identified amongst the variables of resiliency, subjective well-being, emotional intelligence, teachers’ self-efficacy and physical activity. Pre-service teachers had significantly higher levels of resiliency in relation to sense of relatedness during the teaching practicum. The findings also suggest that higher levels of physical activity were related to lower levels of resiliency in relation to emotional reactivity during the practicum experience. The results are discussed as they relate to the relevance of the identified variables within a sample of pre-service teachers before and during their teaching practicum.
