This research is a study that aims to reveal whether there is a significant difference between primary school teachers' stress-coping methods and their demographic features, and if any, whether it is negative or positive. The study consists of 191 primary school teachers working in 14 primary schools in seven geographical regions. The "Stress-Coping Methods" scale developed by Aydin (2008) was used in this study in order to determine stress-coping methods. As a result of this study, it was found that the stress-coping skills of primary school teachers are at the intermediate level and primary school teachers prefer the self-confident approach most. Nevertheless, it was concluded that married teachers prefer the despair approach, male teachers that are older than 46 years prefer the optimistic approach, teachers with the experience of 21 years and more prefer the submissive approach, and teachers working in the Southeastern Anatolia Region prefer the despair approach more.
