dc.description.abstractThere are several reasons why teachers are reported to have low morale. Many teachers who are choosing to leave the profession altogether cite stress related to increased demands on time, low pay, student discipline issues, lack of parental support, and lack of support or concern on the part of building principals as issues that teachers face. This descriptive case study was conducted in a Midwestern suburban school district. Utilizing the theoretical tradition of case study, teacher perceptions were explored regarding principal leadership behaviors and teacher morale. The central questions were: (1) Are there any differences in teacher morale associated with principal leadership behaviors? (2) How do teachers perceive teacher morale and principal leadership behaviors as they relate to the climate of the school? The findings supported the reviewed literature in that a principal’s daily behavior plays a vital role in the environment of the school and the morale of teachers. Implications for practice and recommendations for further research are includedeng
