    In my master thesis, I note self-image of special education teachers and primary school teachers, I compare them and determine in which areas their self-image is good and in which poor. In the theoretical introduction, there are the definitions of self-image, components and areas of self-image, the self-image of teachers, factors that affect the self-image of teachers, the impact of self-image on teaching and on the self-image of students, ways of promoting positive self-image in teachers and students. In short, I also present the work of primary school teachers and special education teachers. I explored the self-image and areas of self-image with Teacher confidence scale (TECON) and Questionnaire to Determine the Self-Image of Teachers. The sample is composed of 85 people, of whom 60 are special education teachers and 25 primary school teachers. The results show that the self-image of special education teachers and primary school teachers is generally good, between the groups there were no statistically significant differences. The special education teachers have good self-image in all areas, except in the area of physical security. On the other hand, primary school teachers have good self-esteem in all dimensions of self-image. A statistically significant relationship was found in the relationship of self-image and years of service; it turned out that the self-image in relation to the years of work improves. In the field of identity, the chi-square test showed a statistically significant difference between the two studied groups, since significantly more special education teachers show poor self-esteem in comparison to primary school teachers. To sum up, my main findings are that special education teachers and primary school teachers have good self-image, but we have to pay attention in the field of physical security of both groups and help young teachers to develop good self-image and provide them with more support and mentoring. We also have to educate teachers about the importance of healthy self-image and its impact on teaching and the quality of life.
