Thesis topic: Relationship between Resilience and Commitment to Teaching Among Montana Agricultural Educators
This study set out to establish whether a relationship between resilience and commitment to teaching exists among Montana agricultural educators and also sought to fill an identified research gap between these two factors exists across educator career stages. The population was all currently teaching Montana agricultural educators as well as Spring 2021 student teachers in agricultural education. A mixed methods research design was used, beginning with a quantitative survey instrument examining resilience and commitment to teaching. A purposive sample of survey participants was selected for further qualitative analysis via semi-structured interviews. Interviews were delivered face-to-face and over the phone, with audio recordings and field notes used for data collection. Data analysis was completed for quantitative and qualitative data separately, with analysis of variance (ANOVA) and correlation analyses used for quantitative data and thematic analysis used for qualitative data. The two analyses were integrated, with the qualitative analysis used to help explain and support the results of the quantitative data analysis.
