Thompson, Denise G.
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, University of Phoenix
An investigation of the relationship between job satisfaction and retention among elementary, middle, and high school teachers in a suburban school district in Georgia was addressed in this mixed-methods study. The focus of the study was to determine the level of job satisfaction among the nine subscales of the Teacher Job Satisfaction Questionnaire (TJSQ) completed by teachers, the level of job satisfaction among the school levels of teachers, the level of job satisfaction among male and female teachers, and the relationship between teaching experience and job satisfaction. Data were collected through an electronic questionnaire (TJSQ) and a focus group interview session. Based on the findings of the study, significant differences in the level of job satisfaction among teachers were revealed. Middle school teachers and male teachers at all school levels had the highest levels of job satisfaction. No significant relationship existed between job satisfaction and teaching experience.
