Abstract


This study aimed to find out job and life satisfaction and work-family and family-work conflict levels of teachers. The population of the study consisted of teachers who work in public and private preschools, primary, secondary, and high schools in Ankara. The sampling of the study was a total of 406 teachers-37 preschool, 126 primary school, 89 secondary school, and 154 high school teachers. The data for the study were collected through three different scales; Minnesota Job Satisfaction Scale, Life Satisfaction Scale, and Work-Family and Family-Work Conflicts Scale. According to the results of the study, job satisfaction average of teachers is good and life satisfaction average is moderate. Life satisfaction increases as job satisfaction increases. The results also suggest that teachers suffer more from work-family conflict than from family-work conflict. A negative and significant correlation has been found between job satisfaction and work-family conflict and also family-work conflict. According to the results of the hierarchic regression analysis, the variables that best predict job satisfaction are life satisfaction and work-family conflict.
