MACIAS PALMA, María Celinda  and  MACIAS PALMA, Mario Marcelo. Perception of voice wear in elementary and high school teachers in a private educational institution. Revista San Gregorio [online]. 2021, vol.1, n.47, pp.126-142. ISSN 2528-7907.

Voice is the main tool in teaching, and among there is a high percentage of teachers with health problems in this educational population related to voice, these results are derived from individual components such as the misuse of the voice, vocal effort; and structural components determined by environmental factors and conditions of the educational establishment. The objective of this descriptive type study was to assess the perception of voice fading in 49 teachers and relate them to the intra and extra work activities they usually carry out. The VHI-30 questionnaire was applied, obtaining the degree of mild voice disability, the score was 15.67; the statistical analysis was performed with SPSS® 25.0 software and, descriptive arithmetic and inferential statistical techniques were used to determine values ​​of asymptotic significance. In the results obtained, the null hypothesis for the variables was confirmed; that is, even though the values ​​are not equal arithmetically, statistically there is no significant association either. However, for the variable "discomfort in the throat during the working day", the results showed a statistically significant association, which could be due to the lack of training of teachers in the use of the voice and its correct modulation.
