Many people regard work as an attribute of adult life that also represents an important part of their personal and civil identity: an adult attribute that forms an integral part of a personal and civil identity. Good citizenship means being competent in life, contributing to life satisfaction and well-being. Can we link teacher‘s subjective well-being to responsibility for their students‘ achievements? We use the Berne Questionnaire of Subjective Well-being (Adult Form) and the Responsibility for Student Achievement Questionnaire. We found teachers thought that students´ achievements often result from the good teacher’s work, while underachievement is caused by students’ lower abilities. The longer they have practiced as a teacher, the more likely they are to hold this opinion.
