This study investigated the impact of stress on the job performance of femalesecondary school teachers in Ikeja Local Government Area of Lagos State. Aquestionnaire was designed to carry out this research. Data collected wereanalysed and three hypotheses were tested using the T-test and the one wayANOVA.
Teaching is one of the most significant and visible profession in theworld. All other professions in the society have their bases in the profession of teaching. As a profession it is the basis of the development of any country.Teachers are essential for the effective functioning of education system and for improving the quality of learning processes. Teachers play a important role inconstructing the personality of their students. Schools are as importantinstitutions as any other organization of the society. It can be reviewed as aninterface, a platform where significant socialization of growing children takesplace and where a sizable number of adolescent members of a society followcareers and meanings in their lives. Important of profession is obvious however;the social and psychological conditions exert a strong influence on the levels of performance, job satisfaction and even on the mental health of teachers.Teaching as a profession involves a complex work environment, leadingtoo much of stress. The job of being a teacher is both demanding andchallenging. Teachers draw upon physical, emotional and intellectual resourcesin order to be effective in the classroom. Like all other professionals, teachersare also overwhelmed by multiple and complex challenges. They lag behindtheir counterparts in relations to the opportunities for self development andprofessional enhancement. In many parts of the world, teachers are rarelyprovided with the resources they need to meet the high demands andexpectations placed on them. The long hours at work (as they supervise studentsprojects, evaluate students work, prepare lessons and conduct the examination)coupled with pressures of their job environments eventually lead to debilitatinghealth problems (Deary, 1996). Furthermore, the problems and hazards of society and particularly education system are aggravating factors that maycause, and as a consequence, teachers may prone to experience stress.
Within the context of occupational stress, teacher stress has undoubtedlybecome an area of major interest to educationists and education policy maddersthroughout the world. Teaching has many intrinsic rewards for people enteringthe pedagogical arena. However, teaching is not without its inherent problems.Problems associated with job related stress remain at the top of many teacherslist. The wealth of research published on teacher stress has indicated that it isthe number one health problem amongst teachers (e.g, Grivia & Jockes, 2003).Historically, the duties and responsibilities of teacher have been viewed asdemanding. Duties such as instructional planning, managing of students,behavior, interacting with other teachers and administrators professionally havecontinued to increase in both complexity and accountability. Accompanyingstressors such as meeting with parents, grading and evaluating students, andadministrative paper work requirement can produce a great amount of stressfulsituations for the teachers.Female teachers in additional to occupational stress are faced withemotional and domestic stress. This research examines the impact of stress onthe job performance of female secondary school teachers.
The purpose of this study is to find out the impact of stress on the jobperformance of female secondary school teachers. It will also find out causes of job stress in and its effect on their output. The study also hopes to offer suggestions and recommendations that are considered necessary to improveperformance of teachers.
The following hypothesis would be raised and tested during the course of this study.
