Teacher Stress: An Analysis and Possible Solutions to Burnout.
Schaiper, Len; DelForge, Clarence
The definition of teacher stress is presented along with a brief description of its manifestations. Statistics are offered regarding the causes and severity of teacher stress. A major focus is put upon the real role and ego ideal of teachers, chronic discipline problems, and frustration with poor student achievement. Three processes for helping to improve teacher job satisfaction are outlined: (1) team teaching; (2) matching of students and teachers according to learning style and teaching style; and (3) the development of an ongoing support system. The ongoing support system includes the formation of voluntary small groups, venting sessions, strength showing groups, concrete task groups, and social groups. (Authors/JD)
