The most popular studies about this matter in Saudi Arabia are done by Gaziel (1986), Johnson &Holdway (1994), alga by (2003), and Oplatka and Mimon (2008). Most studies address the important role of the job of the head teacher who can be an English teacher in the school itself. The most contribution study is done by Spector (1997). He identifies three reasons for job satisfaction: are human values which are essential in orienting the organization by treating the staff fairly well; second, the behavior of the organization’s staff effects on its operation, either positively or negatively. Third, the assessment of employee satisfaction identified the area in need of improvement. This is the process of teaching in which teachers are dealing with the future of the community or society. Johnson and Holdway (1994) mentioned the importance of researching jobs. Actually, one can find that there are a relation and links between the quality and life in the society, the modernization, the assessment of new technology, these impose a great deal of pressure upon teachers and draw attention to the need for more concern over job satisfaction .
In this field, there are many researchers who have attempted to define the concept of job satisfaction. This job guide is very important in the process of education as of its crucial and vital role they play in this respect. Funnyman (1992) pointed out that, according to the literature, job satisfaction factors are divided into three groups. These are 1(organizational characteristics focusing on issues such as reward, supervision, and decision-making practices, 2) specific aspects of the job that include workload, autonomy, feedback and the physical working environment, and 3) individual characteristics concerning personal characteristics such as self-esteem and general life satisfaction. The encouragement of the students by the teacher or head teacher by rewarding them by encouraging them, giving them rewards and gifts; and even ask the administration to reward a pupil by giving him money. These need from the teacher himself to of a good mastering of the language; while the teacher is doing his job he has to pay a certain attention to the individuals feature and differences. Pupils r student dissatisfaction has to be highly considered, meanwhile, the decision which will be taken by the teacher or head teacher can be regarded as very important just can be considered as a hygiene factor which can prevent dissatisfaction. So, the role of head teachers and administration is of high importance and can't be avoided in the process of learning.
