The complexity of contemporary schools necessitates principals supporting teachers to become teacher leaders while also supporting their instructional practices. Drawing on data from the 2018 Teaching and Learning International Survey, principal and teacher surveys examined how principal instructional support and a climate of shared leadership are associated with teacher satisfaction. Findings suggest that more frequent principal instructional support led to lower teacher satisfaction. Meanwhile, shared leadership was associated with increased levels of teacher satisfaction.
