Abstract

The job satisfaction of elementary school counselors in Virginia was examined in this study. The entire population of 324 elementary school counselors was surveyed with a modified Minnesota Satisfaction Questionnaire. The following research questions were addressed: 1.) What are the levels of overall job satisfaction in elementary school counselors in Virginia? 2.) What degree of satisfaction do Virginia elementary school counselors express with subfactors of job satisfaction? 3.) For elementary school counselors in Virginia, what is the relation between overall job satisfaction and selected demographic variables/work characteristics? Data were also collected through use of an individual information form. Survey materials were mailed to 324 elementary school counselors with a response rate of 88.89% obtained. Of this total 273 of the surveys were usable for data analysis.
