Abstract

Work engagement must be owned by workers, especially in the education sector, namely female teachers. High work involvement will have a good impact on the success of teachers in working to educate the nation's life. This study aims to determine the role of work optimism in increasing work engagement. In this study, researchers used the work engagement scale, the optimism scale, and the partner's social support scale. The sampling technique used purposive sampling. The sample in this study were female teachers who were married or who had a partner and took care of the household who taught at "X" district schools in Klaten and Yogyakarta, Indonesia. The number of samples in this study was 45. The data analysis technique in this study used the product moment correlation technique for hypothesis analysis. The research results show a relationship between work optimism and work engagement, the value of r = 0.703 (P <0.01). Work optimism has a role of 49.4% in increasing work engagement for female teachers. Work optimism has a role of 49.4% in increasing work engagement for female teachers. The higher the work optimism, the higher the work engagement.
