Education, v128 n2 p211-226 Dec 2007
Research supports teacher preparation programs to recognize stress factors and to assist students and new teachers with effective coping mechanisms. Twenty-five to fifty percent of beginning teachers resign during their first three years of teaching (Fleener, 2001; Roulston, Legette, & Womack, 2005). Among all the causes, stress from teaching is one of the salient factors that has been investigated by many educators (Wadlington, Slaton, & Partridge, 1999). Having the ability to deal with stressors is vital in teacher retention. This study investigated causes of stress and ways to alleviate stress for novice elementary teachers. (Contains 1 table.)
