The purpose of this study is to investigate the ways in which relevant indicators of teachers’ sense of their professional identity (job satisfaction, occupational commitment, self-efficacy, and change in level of motivation) are related. Classroom self-efficacy and relationship satisfaction play a key influencing role in the relationships between the indicators. When using a constrained model with multiple-group SEM, the parameters of the overall model are the same for beginner, experienced, and senior instructors. The results of prior study on the professional identities of teachers are consistent with this element of the similarities that may be seen across experience groups. The current research makes a significant contribution to the advancement of a robust theory on the professional identity of teachers, which has hitherto been absent.
