The Bangla version of "Job Satisfaction Scale" (Rahman, 2003) and "Self-esteem Scale" (Ilyas 2003) were used to measure job satisfaction -and self-esteem of the teachers. Data were analyzed by mean, standard deviation, Pearson Product Moment Correlation and two-way analysis of variance (ANOVA). The findings of the presentstudy showed that Government teachers are found having significantly more self-esteemed (F= 5:7.1, df = 1, p < 0.02) than non-government teachers. But types of teacher were no significant effect on self-esteem. On the other hand, institutions were found having no significant effects on the job satisfaction at the teachers. However, college teachers were found having significantly more job satisfaction {F= 9.00 df = 1, p <0.00) than school teachers.
