Summary/Abstract: Stress is considered one of the serious problems in the workplace that extremely affects all employees. Stress may have a negative impact on employees both in their private and business lives, and can reduce their quality of lives and their success as well. In this study, we aimed to investigate the potential stress factors of teachers who are well known to have a high level of stress. In this context, our research was planned as a field study through structured survey questionnaires with 92 teachers working in public schools affiliated with the Ministry of National Education in Kocaeli. The result of the study might provide a potential resource for teachers experiencing work-related stress and looking for ways to cope with work related stress as well. Our study would also be important for contributing to the occupational stress literature which is understudied.
