Chambliss, Annette
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, Lamar University - Beaumont
The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between teachers' job satisfaction and their campus administrator's level of servant leadership. Although Greenleaf's (1977) seminal work on servant leadership has led to the connection between servant leadership and education, minimal research has been done to investigate the effect servant leadership of campus administrators has on job satisfaction of teachers. This study sought to answer the research question: "Is there a relationship between servant leadership and job satisfaction?" by conducting an empirical study in a southeast Texas school district. The participants in this study were 481 kindergarten through twelfth grade teachers organized into the three groups of elementary, middle level, and high school. Descriptive statistics were collected on data for all classroom teacher respondents using the Organizational Leadership Assessment (Laub, 1999). This instrument provided data that were analyzed using a correlational analysis, mean scores, and an analysis of variance (ANOVA). Results of this study indicated there is a statistically significant and positive correlation between job satisfaction of teachers and servant leadership of their campus administrators.
