School teachers are consistently faced with job related stress. Research has shown signs of stress induced burnout being a prevalent factor among the teaching profession. However, more articles claim the demand for research to help prevent stress induced burnout. The purpose of this project is to converse with teachers about how they are experiencing stress and what health protective measures they utilize to alleviate it. Based on the review of the literature of teacher stress and burnout, multiple studies have used the Maslach Burnout Inventory survey and gathered quantitative data. For this research project, I conducted qualitative interviews, at one school in the Lower Mainland, BC, where I asked five teachers questions regarding workplace stressors, burnout, and the ways they attempt to alleviate stress. This process provided in-depth insights to the types of strategies they utilize to prevent stress induced burnout, and how they continue to better themselves while maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
