Abstract
This paper aims to derive from a critical review of prior studies about the correlations between the constructs selected for investigation in this study. The study seeks to identify the level and determinants of job satisfaction among teachers in Jordanian high schools as well as the relationship between levels of education, teaching experience with those of Jordanian high schools' teachers. Furthermore, readings of literature studied in detail to determinants of teacher satisfaction in Jordanian high schools. This literature reading is also done to describe the existing models. In the attempt to study the determinants of teachers' job satisfaction in Jordanian high schools, a quantitative research design adopted as the concept that the objectives of this study will be harmonious with the significant features of the quantitative method will suffice as the main reason for choosing this research design. In this study, the Herzberg's two-Factor theory for the creation of a suitable model and framework for the research regarding the teacher's job satisfaction. Additionally, this paper also aims to provide future suggestions circulating this matter. This matter holds a relatively high significance where thorough examination and documentation conducted. Another reason for its significance is the limited amount of research on this area in Jordan. Besides, the number of empirical research performed on a teacher's job satisfaction is still scarce although the investigation demands, specifically regarding the methods of enhancing the teacher's job satisfaction
