Abstract This mixed methods study explored the factors that lead to job satisfaction in a changing educational environment. The study was completed in a rural school district in the central Ohio area. The data were collected through the administration of Hackman and Oldham’s Job Diagnostic Survey along with conducting individual interviews and focus groups. Multiple sources of data were collected from participants at varied times. Themes from both quantitative and qualitative approaches were cross-checked, while findings were compared to the literature review. The data analysis led to the following themes: importance of instructional support from administration and colleagues, commitment to student success, teacher self-efficacy, and a belief in job significance. Data also revealed that educational changes have resulted in the participants’ break in psychological contract, which has triggered feelings of fear and loss of confidence.
