SOCIOTROPIC TEACHERS VS AUTONOMIC TEACHERS IN TEACHER-STUDENTS RELATIONSHIP IN CLASSROOM ENVIRONMENT

Personality traits of managers and teachers are of great importance for the success of the management issues in all fields including education and for achieving the success targeted by the institution. In particular, education administrators have a great responsibility towards teachers, school staff, students and parents outside the school in the educational institution where he manages. Attitudes and behaviors of school administrators are important in fulfilling these responsibilities and personality traits determine these attitudes and behaviors. The sociotropic autonomic personality traits of education administrators and teachers are very important in terms of management in the school environment and are effective in all areas from conducting school activities to ensuring discipline in the school. In the study we aimed to determine whether sociotropic or autonomic teachers good at students-teacher relationships in school environment. We applied Sociotropy-Autonomy Scale (SAS) to determine the personality traits of 25 teachers working in various High Schools. After determining 4 sociotropic and 4 autonomic teachers, we asked a question to their students to find out which personality traits are good at students-teacher relationship. We reached the conclusion that sociotropic teachers can establish good relations with the students, however the autonomic ones are lack of communication skills, thus failing to establish effective relationship with the students at school environment.
