Abstract:An integral part of a person's life is his job. Satisfaction at work is a result of more influences, which include the selection of the profession itself, the satisfaction with the performed activity and the financial awards. The pedagogical profession is considered to be physically and mentally very demanding. The job satisfaction in this profession is also reflected in the quality of preparation for the future generations. Our research has focused on detecting the career anchors and job and financial satisfaction in relation to the attitude towards money in a sample of 230 elementary school teachers. To obtain the necessary data, we used the Career Anchor Questionnaire, selected dimensions of the Life Satisfaction Questionnaire, and the Attitudes to Money Questionnaire.
The results indicate that teachers prefer a lifestyle anchor that reflects the need to combine a career with their lifestyle. A negative correlation between perceptions of job satisfaction and positive attitude to money was found. Individuals with an increased need for job security have shown a connection with declining job satisfaction.
Keywords: Career, life satisfaction, attitudes to money.
