School Climate and its Impact on Teachers’ Surface Acting: Emotional Intelligence as Moderator

Ma. Annalyn C Camba | Leah Ace B Escapalao



The moderating role of emotional intelligence in the relationship between perceived school climate and surface acting of teachers is the focus of this study. Data were collected from teacher-respondents (N=446) using TELSS and the SLEQ-Revised. Results show that having a healthier school climate lessens the surface acting of the teacher. The relationship between school climate and surface acting for teachers depends on the teacher’s emotional intelligence level.
