CANTON MAYO, Isabel  and  TELLEZ MARTINEZ, Sonia. Labor and professional satisfaction of teachers. Rev. Lasallista Investig. [online]. 2016, vol.13, n.1, pp.214-226. ISSN 1794-4449.

The high relevance and influence of teachers in the younger generations makes the study of those teachers´ satisfaction really important, as it directly affects their professional performance and efficiency. This research work aims to revise the main studies about labor and professional satisfaction among teachers, starting with a conceptualization classified by authors and using a determined vision of the way data are obtained and of the measuring categories. The methodology followed has been the selection of three thematic databases and the ISBN´s results to extract the contributions on the subject published over the last ten years. The results show a plurality in the focuses and viewpoints depending on the scientific origin of every researcher. Besides, women are remarked as a majority in the educational levels below higher education and a satisfaction in levels between medium and high with the profession, highlighting, in a positive way, the relational aspect and, in a negative one, the valuation and the salaries. As an improvement, more references in English could have been included, but in that case the paper would have turned out being an endless work.

Keywords : Teachers; labor satisfaction; conceptualization; bibliographic revision.
