Abstract: 
This study is about school principals' perceptions of personal and professional efficacy with regard to teacher supervision. It measures and compares these two perceptions of efficacy and identifies the variables that are associated with them. Thirty-seven school principals of the New Brunswick French-speaking sector participated in this study. The results reveal that for school principals professional efficacy is more important than personal efficacy. Perceptions of professional and personal efficacy are influenced by gender, whether they are pursuing continuing education, the extent of their teaching responsibilities, and their qualifications.
