The research study is detecting how subjective life satisfaction in the teacher's profession influences his / her assessment of their pupils. The study represents an extensive type of research, based on procedures suitable for quantitative research. In order to determine the well-being of the teachers, Grob's Bernsk√Ĺ questionnaire of subjective satisfaction was used to examine the following items: a positive attitude towards life, experienced problems, somatic difficulties, self-esteem, depressed mood and joy in life. The second method of research was the Guskey RSA questionnaire - Responsibility for Student Achievement Questionnaire, which assumes that the teacher experiences his / her share of responsibility for the pupil and his their school performance. The method is intended for teachers of elementary and secondary schools. In this study the questionnaire was completed by 223 respondents, of which 110 were male and 113 female. The results show that the longer is the practice of teachers, the higher is their self-esteem. With the length of teaching practice it is weakened the opinion that pupils are blamed for their fail. We have proved that the less teachers give their own problems, the higher they feel that the good results of the students are their merit. Research has also found that women report significantly more somatic problems than men.
