The purpose of this study was to examine the level of job satisfaction experienced by a sample of Greek teachers and to examine the relationship between personal characteristics and specific aspects of job satisfaction. The sample consisted of 354 teachers, 28 to 59 years of age, from 40 state schools. The results of the present study suggest that teachers were satisfied with the job itself and supervision, whereas they were dissatisfied with pay and promotional opportunities. The results of standard multiple regression showed that certain personal characteristics (e.g. gender, age, etc.) were significant predictors of different aspects of job satisfaction. Variables other than the personal characteristics, such as organizational variables, should be included in future research in order to explain better the teachers’ job satisfaction.
