The aim of this research is to examine professional personality competence of physical education teachers working in secondary and high schools in Çanakkale with gender, school type, school level, years of service and sport branches. The research was conducted according to the scanning model. The research group is formed by physical education teachers (n=92) who works in the public and private schools connected to the Ministry of National Education in Çanakkale Center, Ayvacık, Bayramiç, Biga, Çan, Ezine, Gelibolu, Gökçeada, Lapseki and Yenice towns in 2013-2014 academic year. The mean age of the study group is 38,7. While 35,9% of the study group is formed by female physical education teachers, 64,1% of the study group (n=59) is formed by male physical education teachers. PET Professional Personality Competence Scale which is developed by Büyüknacar (2008) as data collection tool and redesigned adapted to the physical education teachers by Demir (2012) was used. According to the obtained research results; subcomponents of professional personality competence of physical education teachers, gender, years of service, type of school, school level and sport branches are evaluated as “completely adequate”. However, it is seen in all variables that the mean scores of respect for human dignity and justice subcomponent were found to be lower than the other subcomponents. According to the results, physical education teachers see their professional personality component “completely adequate”. But, in respect for human dignity and justice subcomponent, it is thought that having the lowest average score can cause problems.
