The purpose of this study was to examine a relationship between teacher turnover and teacher satisfaction/teacher involvement. The measurement tool was a survey. The study involved participants completing a twenty-six multiple choice question survey and evaluating the results. The questions sought to find information about length in the teaching field, involvement in the school, and satisfaction with the teaching career. The results indicate that teacher turnover was related to teacher involvement and satisfaction. Research in the area of teacher turnover should continue due to the high percentage of teachers leaving the profession nationwide (50%).
