Job Stress Among Teachers
Related job stress and job satisfaction have been a topic researched by several scholars and now by me. The issue of stress in the teaching profession as caused a serious concern for both faculty and administrators (Schuster, 1986). The increasing stress have been creating profound impact on female teachers (Lease, 1999), and new faculty members (Oslen, 1993). Researchers have been investigating the source of many of these stressors faced by teachers. The result of these findings have indicated that time pressure (Coombs, 1998), high self-expectations and job demands are a few of the sources of these stressors. The intensity of these stressors has hindered faculty members from effectively maximizing their objectives.
