Teacher Stress: A Case Study.
Miller, Geri; Brown-Anderson, Felicia; Fleming, Willie; Peele, Tony; Chen, Margaret
Recognition of the numerous factors that produce and affect the levels of stress existing within the teaching profession serve to reveal the complexities that exist in reducing this stress. In addition, accurate identification of the sources of teacher stress is necessary in order to determine how it can be reduced. The purpose of this case study was to identify the sources of teacher stress through the use of a survey and the Teacher Stress Inventory. The organizational characteristics measured were: tight time constraints, heavy workloads, low income, limited career advancement, high student discipline and student interaction problems, high autonomy and low participation in decision-making, and low collegiality. Individual characteristics examined were gender and a single factor combining age and teaching experience. The significant findings of this study in relation to stress were the age of the teacher and the amount of teaching experience of the teacher. Implications and directions for future research are also discussed. (Contains 37 references and 7 tables.) (GCP)
