Access this Article
In the modern world where lifestyles and the way people work have diversified, people need to flexibly sift through life, trying to balance housework, child rearing, care experiences such as nursing care, and vocational experiences. In view of that, this study first examines the state of the career development of home economics teachers from the perspectives of personal history, vocational history, and family history, and then aims to review the factors relating to the vocational identity of home economics teachers. This study surveyed 157 active home economics teachers using a questionnaire. As a result, a significant difference was found in the following factors relating to the vocational identity of home economics teachers: "faculty of the preferred career" and "period of wanting to become a home economics teacher" in the subjects' personal history; "role model," "job separation awareness," "complaints and burdens concerning vocational life," "financial reasons" and "non-teacher vocational experience(s)" in the subjects' vocational history; and "married relationship" and "awareness of leaving work for nursing care" in the subjects' family history. The vocational identity of home economics teachers not only involves vocational history, but also concerns personal history and family history to a great extent. This study also revealed that these are also important perspectives when considering career development.
