Teachers rated their own spirituality using the Spiritual Competence Scale (Sing & Premrajan, 2007). Teachers' subjective well-being was measured using self-report based on the Satisfaction with Life Scale (Diener, 1985) and Positive Affect and Negative Affective Scale (Watson, Clark, & Tellegen, 1988).
