Abstract

This study investigated the frequency teachers' genuinely express, fake, and hide various emotions and how they relate to key teacher variables. Analyzing data from N = 266 secondary-school teachers, key results were that teachers frequently genuinely express positive emotions and hide negative emotions, and that there are consistent relationships between genuine expression, faking, and hiding emotions and the proposed correlates. Also, our findings suggest that examining teacher emotions on a molar regulation strategy level (e.g., hiding negative) does not capture the whole picture, instead it is relevant which discrete emotions teachers genuinely express, fake, and hide while in the classroom.
