Abstract

The goal of this research is to identify intrinsic and extrinsic variables that influence teacher job satisfaction in an attempt to augment teacher retention strategies. An electronic survey was designed and delivered to full-time teachers and teaching staff at a kindergarten- Grade 12 private institution in southeast Florida. The survey was designed to gain demographic information and data regarding teacher perceptions regarding job satisfaction and specific variables that may influence teacher job satisfaction. The data were analyzed in order to identify potential influences that factors such as age, gender, experience, certification, ethnic background, and incentives have on teacher job satisfaction levels. An analysis of the data led to recommendations for the revision of teacher retention strategies at the private institution where the research was performed as well as recommendations for future research. Future research students could gather more detailed data by increasing sample size and incorporating a qualitative approach.
