Teacher Creativity, Job satisfaction, Professional, Administrative, Personal, Societal aspects, Teaching Profession


The present study focused on the relationship between teacher creativity and job satisfaction among degree college lecturers in Vizianagaram district of Andhra Pradesh, India. The successfulness of any educational program basically depends on the right performance and acceptance of teacher community. This mainly depends on their satisfaction in their profession. The teacher in the present situation is facing various academic and administrative issues. The teacher creativity in relation to various professional, administrative, personal and societal aspects is involved in the teacher profession. The aspects teacher creativity and job satisfaction are conceptually independent and practically interdependent.
