FISCHER, Daniela  and  PEREZ, Karine Vanessa. "Then who am I?": the teaching work in childhood education and the impacts of the work organization in the dynamic of recognition. Cad. psicol. soc. trab. [online]. 2018, vol.21, n.2, pp. 133-147. ISSN 1516-3717.

This study had as a general objective to understand how the recognition of the teaching work in the childhood education interferes with the health of the teachers. For this purpose, it sought to understand the changes in the context of childhood education and the factors that produce pleasure and suffering due to the work environment. The research was carried out in a municipality in the countryside of Rio Grande do Sul, with eight teachers from the first stage of public education, through semi-structured interviews. The methodology used was an adaptation of the Psychodynamics of Work Stricto Sensu. Teaching work in childhood education has undergone changes, its organization included. Some teachers had to assume the pedagogical responsibility of more than one class, which has led to an increase in the workload. In addition, they have little time with the children and the main activity refers to tasks distribution. In this sense, the dynamic of contribution and recognition of the professionals is affected. The acknowledgment is essential so that the work has a meaning for the subject. For the researched teachers, it comes from the children with whom they work, manifested through affection.
