Saitib Lautongmeesakun and Sageemas Na Wichian
Abstract—Teacher profession in Thailand are faced with pressure such as competition for student GPA, improving teaching efficiency, etc. To help teacher work effectively, school can focus on psychological factors. This paper aims to 1) examine the effect of job characteristic, social support, and work resilience on work passion and 2) examine the structure equation modeling of work passion of Thai teachers in municipal schools. 307 samples were Thai elementary teachers in municipal schools at Nakhon Si Thammarat province, Thailand. Data was collected by the questionnaires. The analytical statistics were mean, standard deviation, Pearson product moment correlation coefficient, and path analysis. It was found that the structure equation model of work passion was fitted with the empirical data (χ2/df = 1.269, p-value = 0.053, GFI = 0.963, AGFI = 0.928, Standardized RMR = 0.047, RMSEA = 0.030). Moreover, social support has a direct effect on work resilience, work resilience has a direct effect on work passion, and social support has both direct and indirect effect on work passion (through work resilience). But no significant effect of job characteristic on work passion. The model proposed that social support had the highest effect on work passion (β = 2.40, t = 5.27).

Index Terms—Job characteristic, social support, resilience, passion.
