The method of the study was survey research, and the data was collected by a questionnaire. A modified version of the Minnesota Satisfaction Questionnaire (MSQ) was used. The sample included 400 elementary school teachers in district 1,11, and 16 of Tehran. A combination of systematic and cluster sampling was used. The results achieved in this research were as follows: 88.7% of the elementary school teachers surveyed indicated that they were either satisfied or very satisfied with their jobs, while 3.6% were dissatisfied or very dissatisfied. 7.7% indicated no opinion or no response. Of the 20 aspects of work measured by the MSQ, teachers only indicated dissatisfaction with the activity area.
