Abstract:This study concluded that race and gender do play a significant role in teachers' perceptions, which in fact influences their job satisfaction. This research provides a significant contribution to educational leadership by recommending that principals: (a) supportively interact with teachers whose race and gender differ from their own, (b) appropriately address teachers' identity, and (c) view differences as strengths. To accomplish this goal, principals should critically examine their practices for possible biases related to race and gender to comprehend how their personal attitudes or behaviors could both intentionally and unconsciously influence teacher perceptions.
