The aim of this article was to assess how students evaluate the professional personality competence of Physical Education Teachers in high school and its relation to student satisfaction and student satisfaction with life itself. In line with these aims, this study was completed as a cross-sectional study, which was carried out in a total 890 PE. Of the research group, 50.3% were female and 49.7% were male. Age average was 15.49 years old for females (SD 1.79) and 15.00 years old for males (SD 2.00). We used a questionnaire featuring a Physical Education Teacher Competence, Intrinsic Satisfaction Classroom Scale and Satisfaction with Life Scale. The results are presented as descriptive statistics, correlations and structural equation modelling analysis showing that students’ perceived competence, predicted self-determined satisfaction, which in turn corresponded to life satisfaction.
