Abstract: Stress for teachers is a growing concern, as they incessantly adhere to long working hours and conditions of overwork, unpredictable and the fearness of safety of job, low morale and motivation leading to dissatisfaction in job and lack of authority and responsibilities in roles of decision making. These factors contributing to workplace stress has proved to stand as a detrimental effect on the health conditions, both mentally and physically thereby affecting the wellbeing of teachers. Stress is considered unavoidable in a person’s life due to heavy workload and increasing stressors which lead to more complex and multiple problems in everyday life of oneself. This leads to the negative impact on workplace productivity affecting the development and the progress of the workplace. Teaching as an occupation is regarded as a noble profession but it requires increasing the mental abilities due to an overwhelming and cut-throat competition which sometimes becomes highly tedious. A sample size of N=500 is taken for the study and the sample population was identified within the teachers of Chennai and its outskirts of both private and government schools. This study emphasizes the factors that cause stresses amongst the teachers and a comparative study between the private and the government teachers is also carried out to analyze the level of occupational stress and job satisfaction on various stressors.
