In addition, a personal information form consisting of 7 items related to the professional and personal information of the respondents was developed. The obtained data were analyzed in SPSS 21 package program. Mann-Whitney U, Kruskal-Wallis H and ANOVA tests were used for data analysis. The findings of the research revealed that the physical education teachers who participated in the study were generally satisfied with their profession. It was also found that gender and marital status had no significant impact on the job satisfaction levels of the physical education teachers (p>0.05), while a significant difference was detected between teachers who work in schools where sufficient amount of sports equipment is available and those working in schools that lack enough equipment (p<0.001).
