From the Paper:

"According to Harden (1999), 20 Million days a year are lost in the due to stress. Teachers are part of this pool of workers. The problems teachers face range from more students to longer work hours. Stress is widespread and a normal side effect of many professions. Because of the fact that it is well documented that teaching is regarded as a stressful occupation (Cains, 1998, p.97), I feel the topic of teachers experiencing stress in and out of the classroom to be highly relevant. Teachers experience stress because "teaching is a profoundly emotional form of work" (Troman, 2000, p.337). There are two main characteristics associated with stress. These are the excessive workload or day-to-day demands of teaching and the pressure of conformity or how the teacher must complete a task."
