Palavras-chave: Características Profissionais, Professores, Satisfação no Trabalho Docente, Solidão.

Resumo

O objetivo do presente estudo foi identificar as características pessoais e profissionais associadas com a solidão entre professores brasileiros e medir o quanto a satisfação no trabalho e a solidão estão associadas. Participaram deste estudo um total de 1.194 professores. Recrutados por uma amostragem do tipo bola de neve, os participantes responderam a um questionário online. Foram conduzidos os testes t, ANOVA e correlação de Pearson. Os resultados indicam que professores que estão em um relacionamento amoroso, aqueles que estudaram em faculdades privadas e aqueles que lecionam em escolas públicas são mais propensos a experimentarem solidão. Os resultados ainda revelam que quanto maior o nível de solidão, maior a insatisfação do professor com o seu trabalho.
