Motivation and Job Satisfaction of Catholic School Teachers
Convey, John J.
Online Submission, Paper presented at the Annual Meeting of the American Educational Research Association (Denver, CO, Apr 30-May 4, 2010)
The study examined the relationship between Catholic school teachers' motivation and job satisfaction. The data came from a survey of 716 teachers in three dioceses (Atlanta, Biloxi, and Cheyenne). The school's academic philosophy and its environment were important predictors of the teachers' satisfaction with their sense of efficacy regarding their work with students and their relationships with administrators and other teachers. The motivation to teach in the school because it was a Catholic school was an important predictor of the teachers' satisfaction with the school. The results of the study confirm that the importance of a religious factor as an important motivator for teachers choosing to teach in Catholic schools and an important predictor of their job satisfaction.
