Teachers’ Subjective Well-being and Satisfaction with Life

Subjective wellbeing as an indispensable aspect of the quality of life, has been the object of study during the last decades. Within the school context this concern has been extended to the need to investigate these aspects in the school environment, specifically in the teaching population. The objective of this research is to analyze the subjective wellbeing and the Satisfaction with life of the professionals who dedicate themselves to teaching and the influence that these variables have on different aspects associated with sociodemographic elements and related to the teaching profession. These welfare measures have been collected from a total of 180 teachers of the Community of Madrid who perform their professional work in community and private centers in different educational stages. To achieve the objective of the research, two scales of measurement were applied, the Psychological Wellness Scale for Adults (Casullo y Brenlla, 2002) and the Satisfaction with Life Scale (Diener et al., 1985) and a questionnaire of sociodemographic data. The results show that there are significant correlations between the Satisfaction with life and Subjective Wellbeing in the variables of gender, age, ownership of the center, educational stage and years of teaching experience, highlighting the importance of increasing the number of the sample in future research for deepen in the study of subjective well-being and satisfaction with life of the teaching staff.
