This study set out to analyze the relationship among teachers' workplace spirituality, sense of meaning in life, and psychological well-being. Taking 610 teachers as its subjects, the study employed three scales: one to measure the subjects' sense of workplace spirituality, another to measure their sense of meaning in life, and a third to measure their sense of psychological well-being. These three scales were pretested and found to have good reliability and validity. The questionnaire data were analyzed using hierarchical regression in order to understand the explanatory power of the predictors (workplace spirituality and meaning in life) to dependent variable of psychological well-being. The results showed 62.70% explanatory power. According to the research findings, this study suggests that teachers should understand the importance of having workplace spirituality, of being psychologically sound and of feeling they have a meaningful life. Future studies may further explore the factors that influence teachers' sense of psychological well-being.
