Teachers’ Performance in Relation to Job Satisfaction Amidst the Changing Landscape of Education During Pandemic
The pandemic brought a lot of changes in lives of all people around the world even in the field of education. This became a subject of discussions whether people were able to cope and were still satisfied with what they were doing personally and professionally; and teachers were not exempted to this aspect. The research study aimed to determine the level and correlation of teachers’ job satisfaction and performance during the new set-up of education. The result of the study is intended to be shared to school administration to help them in crafting localized programs and intervention that could lift the teachers’ morale, spirit, work ethics, and performance. The researchers used quantitative research design particularly the correlative design. The teachers answered a survey regarding their job satisfaction that would be correlated to their annual performance rating. It was found out that the teachers were “satisfied” in their job in terms of compensation and benefits, leadership of administrators, social relationship, work environment based on overall mean score. However, there were still undecided and dissatisfied based on the frequency and percentage. They also had the same level of job satisfaction when they were grouped according to their demographic profile namely gender, age group, teaching position, years in service, highest educational attainment and grade level taught. Furthermore, this revealed that teachers’ job satisfaction and performance had very weak positive correlation.
