Abstract

The study aimed to find out the level of teachers’ job satisfaction, job burnout, and the relationship between them. In addition, the study tested the effect of independent variables which are: age, specialization and marital status. One hundred forty-five primary teachers (91 males; 54 females) randomly selected, took part in the study. The data collected via two different adapted instruments (Maslach Burnout Inventory (MBI) and Job Satisfaction Instrument). The results revealed an ambivalent level of job satisfaction and a remarkable level of job burnout. Furthermore, job satisfaction was negatively correlated with two dimensions of burnout: depersonalization and emotional exhaustion while positively correlated with personal accomplishment. Gender differences, marital status and age had shown no statistically significant differences. In contrast specialization has shown statistically significant effect on job satisfaction and two subscales of burnout: Emotional exhaustion and Depersonalization.
