The study group of this research was composed of 400 teachers working employed at primary schools in the city center of Bolu. Principal Support Scale, Teaching Satisfaction Scale and Teacher Subjective Well-being Questionnaire were used in the study.

Research results demonstrated positive and highly significant relationships between informational support and teachers’ job satisfaction and subjective well-being; between informational support and teachers’ job satisfaction and between principal support and emotional (expressive) support dimension and teachers’ subjective well-being. School administrators’ supportive behaviors were found to have a significant effect on teachers’ job satisfaction and subjective well-being levels.
