BRIONES, Elena; TABERNERO, Carmen y ARENAS, Alicia. Job Satisfaction of Secondary School Teachers: Effect of Demographic and Psycho-Social Factors. Rev. psicol. trab. organ. [online]. 2010, vol.26, n.2, pp.115-122. ISSN 1576-5962.
Based on Social Cognitive Theory, the purpose of this study was to examine the effects of several demographic and psycho-social factors involved in teachers' job satisfaction. The sample consisted of 68 secondary school teachers in cultural diversity settings. Their average age was 43.56 years old (SD =10.93); 60.3% were women and 38.2% were men. Path analyses showed that the teachers' job satisfaction was significantly and positively related to personal achievement and perceived support from colleagues, and significantly and negatively related to emotional exhaustion. The teachers' self-efficacy was an indirect predictor of job satisfaction, and a direct predictor of personal achievement and perceived support from colleagues.
