The present study investigated the sources and incidence of self-reported teacher stress in a context in which selected demographic characteristics and school variables were incorporated in the research design. The results of the survey of 478 teachers who completed a self-administered occupational stress questionnaire revealed that 36.03% teachers rated their work as either very stressful or extremely stressful. Results also showed that biographical characteristics of the research sample mitigated self-reported teacher stress. Male and rural teachers found their work to be more stressful, while severity of self-reported teacher stress diminished with teaching experience. Implications of the results of this study were explored and several recommendations made.
