Teacher job satisfaction will have a positive impact on an institution to improve maximum education. The purpose of this study is to analyze the construct validity and construct reliability of the job satisfaction scale, and to find the dimensions and indicators that make up the construct of the job satisfaction scale. The job satisfaction scale is measured by five dimensions, namely the job itself, sallary, promotion opportunities, supervision and coworkers. Subjects in this study were teachers who worked in "X" schools with a total of 60 people. Data collection methods using job satisfaction scale. Data in this study were analyzed using Structural Equation Modeling (SEM) SmartPLS 3.2.8 with reflective constructs through CFA 2nd Order. Based on the results of the analysis of construct validity and construct reliability, the dimensions and indicators that make up job satisfaction for teachers are declared valid and reliable. The dominant dimension that reflects the construction of job satisfaction is sallary, while the lowest one that reflects job satisfaction is a colleague. This shows that all dimensions and existing indicators are able to reflect and shape job satisfaction. Thus the model can be accepted because the theory that describes job satisfaction in accordance with empirical data obtained.
