Abstract [en]

The goal of this study is to examine what five teacher’s impression of the teacher’s role is in their previous years. How important the “joy at work” is in relation with the educational progress? And what aspects that contributes to the” joy at work” and what obstacles that stops them. The essay will also go through the concepts of a teacher role, with connection to the theoretical perspectives of Csikszentmihalyi’s Flow and Antonovsky’s Salutogenesis (KASAM).

The method I used was interviewing five teachers and I used Larsen’s chapter of “content analysis” as a basis, I also used Flow and KASAM as theoretical references in my analysis. I focused to analyze the teacher’s “joy at work” and find a solid impression of what a teacher role is. My result was that the student’ knowledge development made the teachers ease in joy with their work, and working this way was making the environment a better place to work with. The teachers had a strong KASAM and a good feeling of Flow and contribute to the “joy at work” with each other, which makes “joy at work” an important aspect for the working environment.
