Azar Monabbati, Akram Faravani.

Abstract
This study was grounded by the principles and assumptions of constructivism which is the latest learning and teaching theory.
Accordingly, constructive teachers use all their skills to empower students and lead them to autonomy. Through a series of
readings focused on the effects of professional identity, perfectionism, and reflective factors on each other and consequently on
the performance of teachers and students learning, this study was conducted to investigate the relationships among these variables
in the context of Iranian EFL Teachers. Participants included 159 English language teachers teaching in different schools and
institutes in Mashhad. Three questionnaires, namely, English Language Teaching Reflection Inventory (Akbari, Behzadpoor, &
Dadvand, 2010), Multidimensional Perfectionism Scale (Frost, Martin, Lahart, and Rosenblate, 1990) and Teachers' Professional
Identity Questionnaire (Beijaard, Verloop and Vermunt, 2000) were used to collect the data which were analyzed via path
analysis. The proposed model was fit and the results of the study indicated that there were significant interrelationships among the
variables. In other words, perfectionist teachers should be aware of their professional identity in order to become reflective
teachers. These findings have several significant implications for teachers to improve their efficiency and performance in their
teaching. Consequently, the process of learning is also affected.

Key words: Professional Identity, Reflective Teaching, Perfectionism, Constructivism
