This thesis on Job Satisfaction of Nebraska Elementary School Counselors reflects the feelings of Nebraska Elementary Counselors towards their careers as counselors in the public elementary schools of Nebraska. The author feels that only the surface has been skimmed in this area of research as this area has apparently had little or no research which the author could discover to date. However, the author feels that the findings of this research are significant enough to draw varied conclusions about job satisfaction among Nebraska elementary school counselors and to offer suggestions to interested readers on how to help improve the situation of Nebraska elementary school counselors. Also, as the author is an apparent pioneer in this area of research, suggestions will be made on possible other research which would be beneficial for others to follow up on.
