The purpose of this study was to determine the impact of providing teacher leadership opportunities in a small urban charter school on teacher satisfaction. The study was conducted from October 2014 to March 2015 during which time teacher leadership opportunities were offered school wide to teachers who had been employed at the school for at least one year. The results indicate that providing teacher leadership opportunities had no significant effect on teacher satisfaction. All teachers reported an increased level of teacher leadership and satisfaction in certain areas of the school, but that did not change the level of satisfaction with teaching overall.
