Keywords:satisfaction with life scale, determinants, mathematics teachers, graduate students, stepwise regression
Happiness and satisfaction with life are vital to the total well-being of an individual.
In the teaching profession, the attitude as well as the emotional state of the teachers
affects their teaching performance and their relationship with the learners. In this
sense, the researchers conducted this study in the aim of determining the factors
and the level of satisfaction with life of the mathematics teachers currently enrolled
in the Graduate Studies. The factors that were included in the study are personal
profile in terms of age, gender, position, length of service, salary, and teaching load
while school profile included class type, type of school, school population, book
ratio and school facilities. Forty randomly selected mathematics teachers were the
respondents of the study. The data gathering tool used was composed of four parts:
the survey form for personal and school profile, and the Satisfaction with Life Scale.
The data gathered were treated using mean, frequency – percentage, correlation and
stepwise regression. The results show that age, type of school and school population
are determinants of satisfaction with life.
