Abstract: The term organizational climate was coined in 1939 following a study of childrenand#8223;s school clubs by Kurt Lewin and his colleagues. As for schools, climate is a necessary link between organizational structure and teacher attitude and behaviour. It was found that formal characteristics of schools had an important influence on the way in which teachersand#8223; perceived climate (George and Bishop, 1971). Clearly, climate represents a composite of the meditating variables that intervene between the structure of an organization and the style and other characteristics of leaders and teacher performance and satisfaction (Sergiovanni and Starratt, 1988). Teaching Attitude : The concept of attitude was first introduced by Thomas Znanicchi (1918) in their monumental study of people in transition between two cultures. Thomas Znanicchi (1981) regard attitude as internalized counterpart of an external object representing the individualand#8223;s subjective tendencies to act towards an object. Indeed, teacherand#8223;s attitude is playing very significant role as far as question of level of job satisfaction of a teacher in teaching profession is concerned. Although, job satisfaction as an attitude which is distinct from motivation which involves behavior. If an individual perceives that his profession is realizing his values and beliefs, if he has reached the ideals in his profession he will develop positive feelings towards his/her profession and get greater satisfaction from his job. Job satisfaction depends on the degree to which the individualand#8223;s job role complies with his cultural value system. It is also affected by his needs, emotion and expectations. Adjustment :Adjustment is a continuous process that tends to bring out more or less changing attitudes throughout the individualand#8223;s life. Adjustment is a lifelong process and can be defined as a personand#8223;s interaction with his environment. It is a process in which an individual learns certain ways of behavior through which he enters a relationship of harmony or equilibrium with his environment.
