Limited but increasing research has noted that middle leaders (MLs) play a key role in structuring a supportive working environment to help entrepreneurial teachers transform educational innovation into practice. This study employs the three dimensions of the “person-environment fit model,” as a theoretical lens to examine the relationships among MLs, working environment, and teacher entrepreneurial behavior. Findings revealed that the more leading experience MLs have, the more influence they have in promoting teacher entrepreneurial behavior; however, they have limited influence over shaping the working environment, especially the person-organization environment. Furthermore, the mediating effect of the person-environment fit model was complex because teacher entrepreneurial behavior was perceived to be a result of the synergy between the person-group and person-job environment.
