The purpose of this study is to examine the differences in the morale and job satisfaction levels of teachers in elementary (including primary and middle) and secondary (high) schools in terms of their demographic characteristics (gender, age, branch, marital status, teaching level--primary, middle, or high schools--and seniority) and to analyse the relationship between their morale and job satisfaction. The Purdue Teacher Morale Scale, including 100 items, and 36 items-job satisfaction scale were the data collection tools in the study. The study group was composed of branch and classroom teachers working in primary, second and high schools in Çanakkale during the 2015-2016 academic year. The findings shows that the teachers' morale and job satisfaction were both at the "Generally High" levels. According to their demographic characteristics, there were significant differences in the sub-dimensions of teachers' morale and job satisfaction in terms of their branches and teaching level. There was also a significant, positive and high correlation between the teachers' morale and job satisfaction.
