AbstractThe problem of studying the readiness of the elementary school teacher to continuing professional self-education is one of the fundamental in pedagogy. Its significance is due to recognition of the role of pedagogical (professional) self-education in the organization of the teacher’s activities, his professional behavior, communication and raising the level of professional competence. Knowledge of the patterns and mechanisms of professional self-education of the teacher is a prerequisite for the development of both the general theoretical problems of pedagogy and the solution of its main applications. Thus, the effectiveness of self-education is associated with the definition of each teacher specific content of self-study on self-improvement of their personality on the basis of professional introspection, with the creative assimilation of new scientific information and advanced pedagogical experience and the implementation of acquired knowledge and skills in the effects of growth, development, advancement of students. The continuing self-education of the elementary school teacher is more effective if it is related not only to narrow-diademic goals, but also proceeds from the idea of a comprehensive development of a specialist as a person. The more actively the teacher uses information for the development of his own personality, the more information becomes the means of educator’s influence of the teacher. Conversely, the desire to directly transfer information into activities, passing personal rethinking of information, restricts its use in working with students. Consequently, the objective function of continuing self-education of a teacher is the comprehensive development of his personality in order to ensure the high quality of teaching and upbringing of students. The teacher of elementary school, who constantly and systematically engages in self-education, also provides the most effective influence on the formation of the need for students to independently gain knowledge, to develop their respective skills and abilities. As you know, a personal example of a teacher at all times was considered the most important means of education.
