INTRODUCTION Limestone District School is situated in Kingston with a focus on child’s overall development. An HR consultant collected this data about teachers and stress in her school district. Many teachers suffer burn-out and leave the profession early as indicated by many research studies conducted in this area. The HR consultant has noticed a slight increase in the number of teachers taking stress leave over the past few months. To analyze this situation, data was collected through primary research. It includes interviews with 40 school teachers. The data collection mostly included closed - ended questions around variables such as Gender, Age, Marital Status, Teaching levels, Class Size, Techniques to deal with stress, Stress Leave and a few more. Various tests were conducted using appropriate software packages ( SAS and PSPP ) which led to some fact based conclusions. Chi-square test was applied to study association and dependence. Mc Nemar test was also conducted to study statistical significant relationship between variables DESCRIPTIVE FINDINGS The sample as a whole was young (M = 44.15, SD = 12.85). The average age of teachers was 44 years. The sample as a whole had a high teaching experience (M = 15.72 , SD =10.21 ). The average teaching experience of teachers was 15 years. The sample as a whole had a considerable class size (M = 26, SD = 4.5). The average number of students in a class were 26. Analyzing the data collected, it became evident that there existed a gender balance while conducting the analysis. Male respondents were (45%) at the district school. Female respondents were (55%) at the school. (Refer: Figure 1 in Appendix) Elementary teachers constituted (45%) of the sample. Occupational teachers constituted (30%) of the sample and Secondary level teachers constituted (25%) of the sample.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
