Tayeh, Raja
ProQuest LLC, Ph.D. Dissertation, The University of Nebraska - Lincoln
The purpose of this study was to identify the factors that may influence stress levels of secondary teachers in Kuwait. This study was important for two reasons; first, no previous investigation on this topic among Kuwaiti secondary educators had taken place, and second, the findings of this study could serve to develop and implement secondary teacher wellness programs. The study examined 366 male and female teachers' perceived stress and factors including gender, age, and years of teaching in Kuwait public high schools, job satisfaction among these teachers, and their intention to stay or leave the teaching profession utilizing the following instruments: Job Satisfaction Survey, Perceived Stress Survey, and the Intention to Leave Survey. The study selected 10 secondary schools from 5 school districts in Kuwait; 5 all-male schools and 5 all-female schools. The researcher found moderate levels of stress among single female teachers and a moderate negative correlation between perceived stress and job satisfaction among teachers in the 30-44 year-old age range. All teachers studied fell into the "ambivalent" category on the Job Satisfaction Survey, and a positive relationship between teachers' perceived stress levels and intention to leave teaching was found.
