This study investigates relationships between teacher characteristics and teachers’ beliefs about mathematics teaching and learning and the extent to which teachers claim awareness of their students’ mathematical dispositions. Regression analyses revealed statistically significant relationships between teachers’ beliefs and awareness and teachers’ mathematical knowledge, special education certification, race, gender, and the percentage of their students with free and reduced meal status.
