Title: TEACHER STRESS: EFFECTS ON OCCUPATIONAL PERFORMANCE IN AN URBAN DISTRICT
The prominent and concerning problem of teacher stress and its effects on work performance continues to alarm the educational field. This educational action research study identifies stressors affecting teachers' performance and factors influencing teachers leaving the profession and predicts which teachers would leave the profession based on these factors. This study reported results on three behavioral questionnaires that assess cognitive overload, occupational stress, and teacher performance. Two groups of participants completed the questionnaires: the current teachers' group who are currently working as teachers and the former teachers' group who are either former teachers who resigned the field or early retirees who left early because of the overwhelming stress. In this study, these three behavioral measurements were linked with an interview, an open survey, and socio-environmental factors that impact stress responses. This study indicated that occupational stress influences cognition and affects teacher performance.
